Shake Your Shamrocks & Help Support The Augusta Teen Center!
It's that time of the year to put on some green, grab your wallets, and come shake your shamrocks with us at the Calumet Club in Augusta, Maine. Of course it's all for a wonderful cause (the whole grab your wallets part) as we help the Augusta Teen Center at the Boys And Girls Club his their budget of $65,000.00.
The event happens on Thursday evening (March 16th) at Augusta's Calumet Club. The event, all about the Teen Center, will have a wonderful silent and live auction as part of the evening. Oh, did we mention the food? If you haven't had the food from the Calumet Club before, you're really missing out. The food alone is a great reason to come out and have some fun with us next week.
Tickets are still available for this awesome event, but you'll want to get yours soon as this event is expected to sell out shortly. You can get your tickets, or a whole table, by calling the Teen Center at 622-0452 or visiting them online at BGCAM.Org
Additionally, if you're interested in becoming a sponsor for this year's event, all the information and the forms are below!
The Boys & Girls Club Augusta website goes on to say in part;
The Boys & Girls Club of Augusta (BGCAM) is the Augusta area's only free, community-based program for teens. We provide programming focused on suspension reduction, arts, sports and character development. Our facility is housed at the Buker Community Center in Augusta, and services are provided after school, during school vacations and on most holidays. Our participants hail primarily from the Augusta School District. Many are of low socioeconomic status, and often lack strong, supportive family ties and have few positive social advocates.
Each year, the BGCAM serves approximately 250 teenagers in grades 7-12. Approximately 98% of these students qualify for free or reduced lunch-greatly exceeding the state average. With support from the BGCAM, these students are able to take part in positive, community-based programs and services, reconnect to their school communities, and most are able to graduate and attend college.
