2015 Boys & Girls Club Alumni Hall of Fame
“It’s such a great honor to be recognized on a national level by the Boys & Girls Club”, said Gamez. “On the course accomplishments are important, but being recognized for what I’ve done off the course somehow means more”.
The 25th Anniversary of the Hall of Fame was a star-studded evening, emceed by actor Courtney B. Vance.
When asked why the Boys & Girls Club was so close to Robert’s heart, he talked about his experience as a kid growing up in Las Vegas and how it kept him out of trouble.
“It definitely kept me off the streets growing up. The Boys & Girls Clubs work. They help ensure a safe place where a child can spend time furthering their education and growing into healthy productive adults.”

"I don't know of any other organization that's raised more money than golf has, because if you are a baseball player, you're a football player, you're a hockey player, if you're just a businessman, and you want to raise some money for a charity, what do they do? They have a golf tournament. They have a golf outing, and they go out and they do it." Lee Trevino, Retired American Professional Golfer who won six major championships
