An Affair To Remember, Boys and Girls Clubs of Diablo Valley

May 02, 2016 08:16AM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Diablo Valley presents their 31st annual gala dinner and auction Saturday, June 6. Sponsored by Shell Oil Company, this event is at the Concord Hilton at 1970 Diamond Blvd., Concord. Black tie is optional. Registration and silent auction begins at 5:30pm, dinner is served at 7pm, and live auction begins at 8pm. This year’s honorary chair is Harriett Burt. Tickets for the event are $100 prior to May 20 and $125 thereafter. The gala dinner and auction is one of four major fundraisers throughout the year that raises much needed funds to help sustain the programs offered to the community’s youth.

 

Research shows that Boys & Girls Clubs play a key role in reducing delinquency, increasing academic achievement, providing access to technology, developing career goals, and improving attitudes toward school. Clubs achieve this by providing a safe and supportive environment, fun activities, supportive relationships with peers and adults, increased opportunities to learn and develop, and recognition of achievement.

 

Boys & Girls Clubs of the Diablo Valley has been an integral part of the Martinez community and surrounding area for more than 60 years, providing services to thousands of young people. Tina Busker, Director of Operations explains, “Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Our club works collaboratively to fulfill our mission through ongoing partnerships with families, volunteers, educators, businesses and community leaders that offer quality after-school and summer programs at little or no cost to families, which sets us apart from other after-school programs.”

 

The club is open after school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, 2-6pm, and Wednesday 1-6pm. Programs include Character & Leadership Development, Education & Career Development, Health & Life Skills, The Arts, and Sports Fitness & Recreation. For more information, please call 925 228.3896 ext.302 or visit www.bgcdv.org.
