Boys and Girls Club Fundraising Gala is Oct. 4
An evening of great dining, silent and voice auctions, entertainment and more awaits those attending the Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley’s 36th annual Benefit Dinner & Auction on Saturday, Oct. 4 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach.
The dinner and auction, “Great Futures Start Here,” aims to raise $450,000 in support of the club’s low-cost pro- grams, sliding scale scholarship pro- gram, and free programs like after school care at the Oak View Branch and a family support program for English language learner families.
The Boys & Girls Club offers before and after-school programs that focus on learning for more than 9,500 local children. Community support of the annual event ensures that the kids in our community who need the Boys & Girls Club the most can benefit from all the wonderful opportunities the club has to offer.
Great Futures Start Here is chaired by Fountain Valley resident Ed Arnold, host of KOCE-TV’s “Real Orange.” Arnold is one of the founding board members of Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley. He has supported the club as a volunteer for all 47 years of the club’s history and is the longtime chairman of the annual benefit dinner and auction.
“Great Futures Start Here” will raise funds through ticket sales, silent and voice auctions, and a call for guests to sponsor a child. Individual tickets for this event are $150 per person, with tables of 10 starting at $1,500.
Here is a sampling of some of the auction items: Lakers luxury box tickets, vacations to Mammoth, Cancun and Maui, tickets to the 50th Annual Auto Club NHRA Finals at Pomo-
na Raceway, a two-night stay in the Waterfront Beach Resort’s Presidential Suite, and a 1-year family membership at Los Caballeros Racquet and Sports Club.
