With the help of some incredible people (uh, you), our Gala was everything we’d hoped for. Our guests are still commenting on how hilariously thoughtful our emcee and Boys and Girls Club (BGC) alumni, Steve Patterson, was. Steve’s performance was definitely one of the evening’s highlights. So you can imagine how excited we were to see this Tweet from Steve:
“@helpBGC you guys are amazing. Just like the kids you support.”
Clearly, you can take the kid out of BGC, but you can’t take BGC out of a kid!
After all was said and done, together we raised $160,000! Every penny of that will go to work for and with BGC kids.
A few “little birds” have Tweeted that this year’s event was our best ever! We certainly made it our mission to ensure that you had a fantastic time. So thank you again for attending Gala, and for supporting us. At BGC, we believe that every kid is amazing. And we know that you do, too.
P.S. Wondering how to help us between now and next year’s Gala?
