The gala event features the band, Second Opinion, which is composed of area physicians and healthcare professionals. The event is organized by the Boys & Girls Club board of directors, staff, members, and volunteers and a key to the event's success are the corporate, business, and individual sponsors. This year's silent and live auctions offer incredible items and vacation options on which attendees can bid.
The Boys & Girls Clubs open when schools let out. This past year over 900 children participated in after school and summer programs offered at the three Marion County Club locations of Ocala, Silver Springs Shores, and Dunnellon. Club members participate in tutoring, health and physical education activities, arts and crafts, and other activities, including sports and leagues. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, citizenship, and belonging. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place for children and youth to learn and grow – while having fun.
This is a benefit program for the Boys and Girls Club and offers support for local children and youth who are most in need. Individual seating for the dinner event is $125 per person and sponsorship seating is also available (table/business sponsorship includes additional benefits).
