Nearly $5,000,000 Raised at 60th Anniversary Gala

BGCCI broke records on Friday, November 17 in celebration of our 60th anniversary, raising nearly $5 million to support our kids and teens.

BGCCI trustee and event co-chair, Suzie Glazer Burt, made a surprise 4-million-dollar gift in support of our Clubs and in memory of her late sister and long-time Boys & Girls Club supporter, Ellie Glazer Ziegler.

Over 500 community members came together at the Drake University Knapp Center to celebrate Club members, founders, their families, and all BGCCI community supporters.
