2016 YoY Gala

Thank you for making 2016 a year to remember!

2016 was a year to remember for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago. But none of this would have been possible without your support. It's because of you that 2016 was a year our kids will always remember. So, on behalf of the nearly 10,000 members across Chicago, thank you. Here's to an even bigger and better 2017!

Activities included a science fair, an interactive science demonstration and a bridge building competition. Our thanks to The Driskill Foundation for their support!
