41st Annual Boys & Girls Club Benefit Auction
When: Saturday June 2nd, 2012 5pm-midnight
Where: Location TBA
Who: Co Chairs, Bert & Jane Boeckmann, Galpin Motors Family
Why: Auction proceeds supply nearly one-third of the critical funds needed for the entire year of operation of quality after-school & summerprograms at the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley. The Club serves over 2400 children between the ages of 7 and 17 each year! Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Club is much more than a gym and games room! For annual membership dues of just $36.00, young people can participate in a host of nationally acclaimed programs at the Boys & Girls Club Monday through Friday, year round!
What Else: More than 40 Live Auction Items, hundreds of bid board items, a great evening, gourmet food, full bar, entertainment. Grab your best formal cocktail attire and join us as we celebrate the everyday Heroes Among Us who make a difference in the life of a child.
For reservations or to make a donation, please contact the Foundation Office: Ronda or Suzanne at 661-254-3063 or go the website www.scvbgc.org
Why Else: Step inside any Boys & Girls Club, and you’ll find something magical: Young people learning, exploring, connecting with caring adults. Children completing their homework. Teens researching colleges or planning a community service project. Club members running, jumping, laughing, having fun, and improving their health at the same time.
That is the Club Experience and it’s a powerful & positive thing.
Step outside the Club and the view may not be so positive. More than a quarter of American youth do not graduate from high school. Nearly a third are overweight or obese and more than 20% live in poverty. The Boys & Girls Club is here, making an IMPACT and responding to GREAT NEED with five key elements: * A safe positive environment, *Fun, *Supportive Relationships, * Opportunities & Expectations and *Recognition.
Please help us to continue to make the difference for these kids!
GREAT FUTURES START HERE.
