On October 8, 2016, we held our annual “Reach for the Stars” Grand Gala Auction at the Tulalip Resort Casino. This event raised over $470,000 to provide programs for our kids geared toward academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good citizenship.
For 70 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County has been a prominent feature in local communities. We have grown to over 20,000 kids in 21 Clubs and 15 school sites, providing kids with a safe and positive place to go before and after school. We strive to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Support for the Grand Gala Auction Helps Provide:
- Opportunities to build new skills raising each child’s belief that he or she can succeed and receive recognition for personal accomplishments.
- Ongoing relationships with caring adults and connections to new friends in a positive
environment, reinforcing a sense of belonging, accountability, civility and civic responsibility.
- Generation-changing programs that support a commitment to learning, positive values, healthy habits and high expectations for success as an adult.
- A safe place to spend time during non-school hours and the summer as an alternative to the streets or being home alone.
- A chance to play, have fun, laugh and learn.
