Carnival Night and Spaghetti Dinner A Big Success!

All of us here at the Club would like to extend a tremendous thank you to everyone that helped make last evening such a huge success, including all of our child and adult volunteers, the staff, Club board members, and of course all those who showed up as guests to support our event and the Club!  We’d also like to thank all the folks that not only donated their time, but also contributed baskets and gift certificates for our Chinese auction, and other items like desserts that made the event extra special.  Everyone had an amazing time and we are very grateful for the generosity showed by all.  Lastly, we’d like to thank the following company sponsors for donations made to make this event possible:

Mark this one in your calendars folks, this is one event you will definitely not want to miss!  The Boys & Girls Club will be holding a Great Outdoor Adventure Raffle fundraising event hosted by the Evans Rod and Gun Club on June 13th.  We are also asking Club families, or any other willing members of the community, to aid us in selling tickets and spreading awareness of the event.  Every 10 tickets sold yields a free ticket for the seller!  Check out the links below for more information and as always, feel free to contact the Club with any questions.

Attention Club Families and Members of the Community – The Club Needs YOU!

The function will consist of two events, the Dinner and the Carnival.  If you are just interested in the dinner, we’d still be glad to have you!

The night of fun for the whole family will be on Thursday, May 21st from 5-8 PM with the Spaghetti Dinner in the cafeteria, and a Carnival in the gym including games and activities of all kinds!  You are welcome to just stay for the food, or order your dinner to-go, or join us for the Carnival in the gym as well.  There will also be a family-friendly Chinese Auction, as well as a 50/50 Raffle.  Tickets for the event, or just the dinner, are available at the Club or through Club families that will be selling them.  See the flier below for more details.  We are also looking for volunteers that may be interested in lending a hand to assist with this function.

Despite a popular misconception, the Club is not funded by the Lake Shore Central School District and relies heavily on fundraisers put on by our hard-working Advisory Board and the Club itself.  If you’d like to help, please consider attending our upcoming fundraising event (or purchasing a dinner) that’s guaranteed to be a great time for all!  This event is a fundraiser to help raise money for the Club to keep our doors open and continue offering services to the youth of our local communities, while also keeping membership costs as low as possible.  Without the outpouring of support (financial and otherwise) from folks like you, we would not be able to sustain and operate as we do.  As always, we thank you for all that you do to help the Club and we hope to see you there!

Club Council Bracelet Charity Fundraiser

Club Council is a leadership group consisting of kids that attend the Club and help serve as role models for other members.  They carry out various activities, often generating their own ideas to make the Club a better place.  Recently Club Council decided to run a fundraiser to raise money for charity.  They selected the Buffalo Peace House, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide safe shelter for asylum seekers and refugees in the Greater Buffalo area.  The Club, and Club Council members, will be selling Pura Vida bracelets for $4 beginning in May.  If interested, stop by the Club or feel free to contact us!
