Tallahassee, FL – October 28, 2022 – Celebrating the fifth year of Boys Town North

served as the presenting sponsor. This year, Tadlock Roofing committed to donating
$5,000 and surprised the board and members of Boys Town North Florida with an
additional $5,000 donation, bringing the total to $10,000. Tadlock Roofing Founder and
President, Dale Tadlock, and his family know first-hand the support Boys Town North
Florida provides for a family in need of professional guidance.
