Presented by The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club

Join us for Madison's premier gala. With live music, entertainment, raffles, auctions and more, this is a night unlike anything else. Plus, with a few surprises in store, this is something you won't want to miss!

Hearts for Helping raises over $200,000 annually, benefitting over 7,500 local youth. Your attendance and generous gifts help build that number each year into something increasingly substantial. With the new Boys & Girls Clubs Sun Prairie site opening January 2020, we need you now more than ever!

Meet our Emcee: Tom Farley

Tom Farley

Tom Farley grew up in Madison, WI and graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in Marketing.  He began his career in banking and finance, living and working in the New York City area.  From 1999 to 2012, he ran The Chris Farley Foundation, a nationally recognized non-profit dedicated to substance abuse prevention. Like his brother, Tom was successful in opening the "eyes and ears" of youth audiences through the powerful and effective use of humor.  In 2008 he wrote "The Chris Farley Show", a New York Time bestselling biography of his late brother, the actor and comedian Chris Farley.  He has been interviewed on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Larry King Live, Fox News and The View. He has also been featured in People Magazine, USA Today and several national and regional newspapers and publications.  Today Tom is a motivational speaker, delivering messages on prevention and recovery, and the use of Improv as a tool to foster better communications in business. Tom lives in Madison, WI.


Tom has been a supporter of the Club on a number of different levels. Most recently, he helped in the planning of the 2019 Bike for Boys & Girls Club! We are so excited to have Tom join us as the Emcee for this year's Hearts for Helping!
