The Boys and Girls Club of Chaffee County will host the Great Futures Gala from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on September 28 at Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort. This countywide event will replace the Salida Club’s Casino Night and Buena Vista Club’s Boots and Bolos fundraisers of past years.
This year’s Gala features a buffet dinner, an inspirational speech by Youth of the Year, Kuper Banghart, and a live auction emceed by Jim Wilson. Auction items include a trip to Mexico, a full-day fishing/float trip on the Arkansas, and a Cape Cod vacation.
Two Club heroes will be honored for their exceptional service and dedication to the Club’s mission of enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as caring, productive and responsible citizens.
Mind reader Sean Bott rounds out the evening’s entertainment and underscores the futuristic theme. Futuristic dress is encouraged.
