Quiz A Palooza 2016

Please consider attending our event – not only will you be guaranteed to have a rip-roaring time with friends and new acquaintances, but you’ll also be helping a great cause.  The Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore relies heavily on our fundraising efforts to keep the cost of membership as affordable as possible for the families of our community.  By attending our event, you are helping support the youth of Evans and its surrounding areas!

CLUB LOOKING FOR REGULAR VOLUNTEERS

The Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore is seeking part-time volunteer that would like to assist the staff with day-to-day operations with our Club kids!  We are looking for anyone that is willing to help out Monday through Friday between 2:30 and 6:30 (Club hours).  Any number of days or times you are able to come in is greatly appreciated (even one day a week for a couple hours would be helpful!).  Our main needs are in the gym and our lounge (cafeteria) area, but we would certainly accept assistance in other areas too.  If you are a person/student in need of service hours, we are able to provide documentation for volunteer hours performed at the Club.  Or if you are retired and looking for something to keep you busy, this is a perfect opportunity!  We are constantly growing and developing, so any extra help from the community is always welcome.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Justin Simet (Club Unit Director) at 926-2119 or at bgc@lakeshorecsd.org.

*A background check must be done for all volunteers prior to interaction with the kids.

The Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore was one of the lucky recipients this year and was awarded a total of $2,780 toward our new Photography Club program that we will be starting later in the year. The staff is extremely excited to offer a new, unique opportunity to our members, and allow them to develop and showcase their creativity in a new outlet! On behalf of the members, staff, and council members of the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore, we would like to extend a tremendous thank you to Raising Dough for Kids and all of the Pizza Hut restaurants that participated in helping to raise the donated funds. These funds were raised through two fundraising events that took place in the area Pizza Hut restaurants in 2015. In 2002 the locally owned and operated, Hospitality West, LLC, d/b/a Pizza Hut, formed “Raising Dough for Kids,” a non-profit (501-C3) organization to raise monies for Western New York Children’s Charities. Since 2002, local Pizza Hut restaurants have raised and donated over $950,000 to WNY area charities.
This week, the Winter 2016 Raising Dough for Kids campaign in the local Pizza Hut restaurants kicked off. For the next four weeks customers may donate their change to the Raising Dough for Kids foundation. Please help us spread the word. The campaign runs from 1/21-2/17. Please encourage everyone you know to visit their local Pizza Hut and support this amazing foundation.
