Dear Boys & Girls Club of Door County Friends & Family,
With incredible sadness, Boys & Girls Club of Door County (BGCDC) shares that its Chief Executive Officer, Eric Blumreich, passed away unexpectedly from natural causes early Tuesday morning, February 1, 2022. Our Club staff, youth, families, and community have suffered a tremendous loss of a transformational leader who joined our Club family just one month ago. Eric began his role as CEO of BGCDC on January 4, 2022, after working in the advancement office of St. Norbert College in De Pere and as the executive director of Camp Tekakwitha in Shawano. Eric was actively involved in several other youth-serving organizations where his contributions, commitment, and advocacy made a lasting and positive impact for children and teens.
During Eric’s short tenure with our Club, his leadership allowed us to reach an effective partnership with Boys & Girls Club of Greater Green Bay to allow for optimization of Club activities. Our board and staff were uplifted and encouraged by his enthusiasm and vision for the future of our Club, and his presence and tireless energy will be sorely missed.
Boys & Girls Club of Door County will remain closed for the remainder of the week to allow staff time to grieve this untimely loss. We understand the challenge this closure may present to our Club families and greatly appreciate their support and understanding. Our hearts and deepest condolences are with Eric’s family, loved ones, and friends during this difficult time.
