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!

Our Mission: To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
