Here is a message from BGCV’s Emily Harvey.   

boys-and-girls-club-gala-invitation-2017-v2_1-1The Boys & Girls Club of Venice (BGCV) hosted their 12th Annual Champion of Youth Gala Thursday, September 21st at the Jonathan Beach Club in Santa Monica. Held in the sand and under the stars, over 300 guests helped honor the 2017 Champions of Youth Michael Moskowitz and Capital Group to raise over $320000 to support the youth and programming at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Venice. The event was full of live music from Alanna & These Fine Gentlemen, bidding wars, an exciting live painting by artist Gregory Adamson, excellent food, incredible speeches from Club alumni and amazing performances by the Club’s Ukulele ensemble and Club violinist Kiev Morales. Gala Co-Chair and BGCV Board President, Katy Tucker states it best, “this year’s gala was such a wonderful display of all the amazing things going on at our club. It was an inspirational evening, from hearing our gifted teen speakers and our new ukulele players to the honoring of our Board President Emeritus, Michael Moskowitz and treasured longtime supporter, The Capital Group. Our goal for the evening was to expand our network of supporters of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Venice, and I think we truly hit the mark!”
