Description

The Annual Kids Auction is held each fall and is attended by up to 200 people.  The guests consist of community leaders, past and present donors, parents, and alumni.  The elegant evening includes dinner, silent auction, program, and voice auction.   Our current Youth of the Year attends and opens the evening with a short welcome.  

 

This event is our largest fundraiser of the year.  It is not only important for the funds that are raised but it is also an opportunity to share with our supporters the accomplishments of our members.  If approriate, we have special needs of the club at the time and a formal "ask" is made to underwrite the need i.e. new computers, roof repairs, membership scholarships, teen programs.  

All proceeds raised at the event are used for programs that are designed to engage children ages 5-18 during critical before and after school hours.  The Boys & Girls Clubs of La Habra served 3,042 children in 2018.  Our 32,000 s.f. facility includes two junior high size gymnasiums, a recreation room, community multi-purpose room, teen center, fitness center, education center, STEM Lab, recording studio, teaching kitchen, music classroom, dance studio, and an arts & crafts room with ceramics.  Programs are offered Monday - Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.  Members pay a $20 annual membership fee.  

Thank you in advance for your consideration of our request.
