When Allie was younger she took for granted being able to go to camps and have access to coaches, fun activities in a structured environment, so Allie Quigley with the help from her teammate and wife Courtney Vandersloot decided to bring that experience to children from the Boys and Girls Club in Joliet, IL. Hosted at University of St. Francis Rec Center where Allie’s father attended college and his name is now memorialized on the court, youth were able to participate in the camp, and spend some time with the Vanderquigs. The event culminated with an autograph session, pizza party, and the youth received t-shirts, shoes, and basketballs. The Vanderquigs also made a generous donation of brand new basketballs to the Boys & Girls Club of Joliet!
