Hundreds turned out at the Greenville Convention Center Friday for some early tailgating to support the Pitt County Boys and Girls Clubs with the Ultimate Pre-Game Party presented by Vantage South Bank.
There was great food, silent and live auctions, and music all to help raise money to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Pitt County to help all young people reach their full potential.
There were a lot of supporters there, including people who have volunteered with the boys and girls club like Matt Early who's now an ECU student. He posed for a picture with WITN's April Davis and Dave Jordan at the event.
The Voice of the Pirates Jeff Charles and Kevin Monroe, a Boys & Girls Club success story, served as emcee's.
The ECU football team even showed up for a while to get everybody pumped up for community service and of course, the game against Virginia Tech.
