April 2024: Youth of the Year Gala (Boys & Girls Club of the Greater Chippewa Valley)

The Boys & Girls Club of the Greater Chippewa Valley held their annual Youth of the Year Gala in April.


In addition to speeches from BGC youth, the gala featured a silent auction, dinner, and more. Proceeds benefit programming and operations for the local clubs under the Boys & Girls Club of the Greater Chippewa Valley’s umbrella (Altoona, Black River Falls, Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, and Menomonie).

The event celebrates young people in our area and serves as a fundraiser to spread awareness of the organization’s mission, which is “to inspire and enable all youth, especially those that need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.”

Pablo Foundation is an active supporter of the Boys & Girls Club through grant funding for the Lee & Mary Markquart Center, which will house the Teen Program Center.
