RENO — The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows invites the community to its seventh annual pre-Thanksgiving celebration with Bully’s Sports Bar & Grill on Nov. 24 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Donald W. Reynolds Facility on East Ninth Street in Reno.

The Paul Sonner community Thanksgiving dinner provides turkey and all the fixings for a free community meal in honor of the founder of Bully’s Sports Bar & Grill, who died last year and was actively involved in sports programs and was an avid supporter of the club.

“We are proud to honor and remember Paul as we continue this annual Thanksgiving tradition at the club,” said Jo Sonner of Bully’s Sports Bar & Grill. “He strongly believed in giving back to our community by bringing people together during the holidays, which we look forward to carrying on in his memory.”

The event also includes free standard flu shots from the University of Nevada School of Medicine beginning at 4 p.m. This is the fourth year the university has donated the flu shots to diners at the club and only minimal paperwork is required to obtain the vaccination. Also, bring down the whole family for free family photos along with free youth fingerprinting and I.D. kits and a special letter-writing station for those who may be unable to spend time with family this holiday season.

Through Nov. 24, all Bully’s locations are accepting donations of jackets, gloves and hats to benefit children at the Boys & Girls Club. Donated items will be presented to the club during the Thanksgiving Eve event. Attendees at the Nov. 24 event also are invited to sign up to participate, either as a recipient or donor, in the club’s Adopt-A-Family program, which provides Christmas gifts for those less fortunate during the holidays.

To volunteer for the event, contact Gayle Farley at or by calling 331-3605 x 209.

From noon to 5 p.m. on Nov. 25, Bully’s will serve up its sixth annual free meal complete with all the traditional Thanksgiving fixings.
