We are thrilled to announce that the 2018 honoree for our 30th Annual Great Futures Gala is Frank Nacci, a successful businessman, community leader, and club alumnus. Frank is the president and owner of Nacci Printing, Inc. He is well known throughout the Valley
An Allentown native, Frank first came to the Boys
Club (as it was then known) in the 1950s, “I was there everyday”, Frank recalls fondly. “The main thing was always to have fun, but in having fun we learned how to cooperate with people – how to work with people as a team. We were taught responsibility. These lessons stick with you.”
Frank built upon the lessons learned at the Club and joined the PA Army National Guard, honorably serving his country for 26 years. He applies those same lessons of cooperation, service, and responsibility to his printing company, Nacci Printing, in business since 1974.
Frank’s dedication to his country, his community, and the Boys & Girls Club of Allentown is nothing short of exemplary. Serving on several non-profit boards and always working to promote the needs of those who so often do without, Frank embodies the very best of the Boys & Girls Club of Allentown. We’re proud to count Frank as one of our own as we honor him this year.
