Boys And Girls

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego (BGCGSD) invites you to Change Lives and invest in the future of San Diego’s youth with their signature fundraising event, An Evening of Changing Lives (ECL). Each year nearly 800 Club supporters and community members gather for an amazing night that raises critical funds to support the Club’s programs and mission to provide San Diego children with a positive, fun and safe environment.

“We have come a long way since our first Club opened in 1941 in Logan Heights," said Danny Sherlock, CEO & President. "With 18 sites county-wide, we are now the second largest Boys & Girls Club organization in California and with a mission to provide San Diego children with a place to belong, your contribution will ensure that our services are available to those who need it the most.”

An Evening of Changing Lives will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at the beautiful Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina. Enjoy a spectacular night of live entertainment and community outreach along San Diego’s waterfront and historic Gaslamp Quarter.

The fun begins at 6:00 PM with incredible silent and live auctions ranging from Rolling Stones memorabilia to an exhilarating journey to Machu Picchu. Other auction items include a seven-day luxury Los Cabos vacation, an inclusive culinary experience in the tranquil Sabine Hills, Italy and a breath-taking voyage of Antarctica’s landscape and wildlife colonies! With a record of sold-out auction success, registered guests will receive exclusive access to bid on the once in a lifetime items beginning two weeks prior to the event.

“Our signature event is truly one of a kind,” said Chris Burt, BGCGSD’s Event Chair. “It is a great feeling to know all of our hard work directly translates into life changing moments for the kids we serve.” Ticket price includes cocktails, a three-course dinner and a live performance by the classic rock band, STARSHIP Featuring Mickey Thomas – come dance the night away with legendary hits that defined the 80’s era such as “We Built This City,” “Sara,” and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now.”

For over 75 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego has provided youth with a safe and nurturing environment through a wide variety of enrichment programs, activities, and services. Their mission is to inspire and enable youth to achieve academic success, build good character and responsible citizenship, and make healthy lifestyle choices.
