19th Annual Stepping Out for Kids Gala & Auction , Saturday, September 12, 2015
On Saturday, September 12, 2015, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Fresno County will hold its
“19th Annual Stepping Out for Kids Gala and Dinner” at the “Sierra Sports & Racquet Club” located at 2626 W. Alluvial, Fresno, CA.
Proceeds from the event directly benefit disadvantaged children and teens in the community by providing educational and recreational programs for children that instill a sense of competence, a sense of usefulness, a sense of belonging, and the ability to become a leader.
2nd Annual Harvest Festival Gala, Thursday, October 8, 2015
The Harvest Festival Gala supports our Reedley, Parlier and Orange Cove Boys & Girls Club. Last year’s event netted $70,000 to support these 3 Clubs! The dollars generously invested by our supporters make up the shortfall of resources needed to cover Club expenses the Clubs would otherwise not have had to maintain staff and purchase program supplies. We want to try to meet and raise more dollars to continue to create hope and opportunities for the children in our 3 communities through “your” generous investment in our Club Kids.
To sponsor, donate, or volunteer, please contact Sandra Dee Chaney at (559) 266-3117 or (559) 696-0456 (cell); firstname.lastname@example.org.
GREAT FUTURES START HERE.
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.
Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Fresno County is one of the largest youth service agencies in Fresno County. In 2014, thru its 17 Club locations, we helped over 5,900 kids receive the direction and educational support that is vital to their success.
