Great Day for Kids – 2/6/20
7 pm – Kennewick Clubhouse

Great Day for Kids is a youth celebration and donor appreciation event. 

This is the day we announce our 2020 Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year. It is a celebration of our exceptional youth that are chosen by community judges and a time to appreciate our donors and investors for the impact they’ve made in local kids.

The next Great Day for Kids will take place February 6th, 2020. There is no charge to attend and supporters are encouraged to come and celebrate our youth. There will be snacks, beverages and youth performances!

We are grateful to Mission Support Alliance who is sponsoring all local Youth of the Year programs. Thank you, MSA!

The theme this year is Celebrate our Outstanding Teens! featuring our amazing kids. Hear stories from our Youth of the Year candidates and be there as our 2020 organizational Youth of the Year is Announced. Being named Youth of the Year is the highest honor a Boys & Girls Club member can receive.

This event is all about celebrating our kids’ Great Futures and showing them our support. RSVP to Lauren at lauren.wanamaker@greatclubs.org


Annual Breakfast- 4/21/20
Foundation for the Future

This year’s Foundation for the Future Breakfast will take place on Tuesday, April 21st, 2020! Make sure to mark your calendar!

Each year we ask individuals and organizations to invest in our clubs kids. The donations raised help to provide a safe and caring place for more and more youth each year. We rely on community support to grow in programs, services and facility space. The Foundation for the Future Breakfast assists in moving our local clubs to the next level of growth by raising not only funds, but also awareness.

The breakfast will again be held at the Three River’s Convention Center and will take place from 7:30-8:30 am.

The success of this event is dependent upon individuals who are willing to host a table.  Kind individuals who volunteer to host a table are asked to invite 7 guests to join them for an fun and inspirational hour showcasing the impact the Boys & Girls Club has on community youth. There is no charge for being a Table Host and no charge to any guests for attending. However, this is a benefit and guests will be asked to consider making a donation to support our work during the program.
