17 years ago, Dimetrius and Demetriyone Singleton met Mary Ann McLeod in Bethany's Boys to Men program as United Township High School students. Now they run the Quad Cities Blue Raiders non-profit basketball organization. They credit their passion for giving back to Quad Cities youth to Mary Ann's guidance and Bethany's programs.

Bethany for Children & Families is a private child welfare, mental health, community education, and social services provider that has offered aid and support to children and families in western Illinois and eastern Iowa since 1899.

You can help celebrate Bethany's 120th anniversary at the Bethany Community Celebration and Silent Auction on October 5th at the Quad City Botanical Center in Rock Island, Illinois. Tickets can be purchased online.
