FALLBROOK – The Boys & Girls Clubs of North County opened their doors to hundreds of children and their families Saturday, Sept. 16, for their annual Day for Kids event.

Day for Kids is community event designed for youth and their families to enjoy quality time together while participating in free games, face painting, swimming and prizes; no membership required. Children played games led by club staff with the chance to win exciting prizes like a Nerf archery set, Legos, RC Cars and more.

The highlight of the event was the “Lucky Rubber Ducky Race.” Hundreds of rubber ducks were released into the Boys & Girls Clubs’ pool and the owner of the winning duck received the choice of an Amazon Echo, giant stuffed animal or a Starbucks gift card. This year’s winner was Angelo, a member of the Ingold unit.

“We love opportunities to open our doors and share with the community what the Club has to offer,” Allison Barclay, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County, said. “Day for Kids is the perfect example of what our club is all about, with our staff working together to provide a fun and safe environment for the youth of our community.”

Volunteers from the Kiwanis Club of Fallbrook were also on hand to provide food for the event, while members of the local Key Club helped to pass out cotton candy and snow cones.
