FALLBROOK – The Boys & Girls Clubs of North County is busy preparing for its annual auction and dinner gala sponsored by the Donegan-Burns Foundation on Saturday, April 27 at a new location, Pala Casino Spa & Resort.
Auction committee chairperson Denise Torrez said her group is creating some unique touches for the New York-themed event. “We are putting together a variety of auction items and fun entertainment that we feel will include something for everyone,” said Torrez. “Our goal is to raise $110,000 to benefit the children of the greater Fallbrook community.”
The evening will begin promptly at 5 p.m. with the silent auction featuring over 150 items, followed by a three-course dinner and live auction. Entertainment will be provided throughout the evening and live band will perform right after the live auction.
According to Torrez, “The Boys and Girls Club annual budget is $1.1 million. These funds are made available through various fundraisers throughout the year and from outstanding community support. The auction and dinner gala is our largest fundraiser of the year.
Tickets for the auction and dinner are $185 per person or $1,850 for a table of ten. Anyone interested in being an event sponsor for the gala or donating an auction item may call the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County at (760) 728-5871. For more information, visit www.bgcnorthcounty.org.
