Champions of Youth Virtual Gala
May 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue’s 2021 Champions of Youth Virtual Gala will feature powerful stories of resilience and hope from Club members, alumni, and families. During the first week of May, the BGCB community will come together to raise critical funds to expand and improve our services for the Eastside’s most vulnerable youth. The celebration kicks-off on Saturday, May 1 with our silent auction and culminates on Saturday, May 8 at 7 p.m. with a virtual program where Jen Mueller will emcee an inspiring program showcasing stories from our Club community and a LIVE auction with auctioneer Fred Northup Jr featuring one-of-a-kind items.
For nearly 70 years, BGCB has navigated times of tragedy and crisis to provide safe places for kids and teens. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, BGCB has remained open for 52+ weeks. We have pivoted and expanded on how we could meet the needs of our youth, families, and community. This spring BGCB’s primary focus is on distance learning, wellness and mental health support, recreation, and daily breakfast and lunch. BGCB has 11 sites open, ensuring every child has equal access to resources, trusted mentors, and safe learning environments. We are committed to doing whatever it takes to help kids, families, and communities get through this crisis and emerge stronger, but we can’t do it without your support.
