Annual General Meeting
Mad Hatter's Gala a Great Success!
The Westin Bear Mountain was a magical place on the evening of April 2nd after it had been transformed into Wonderland for our inaugural Mad Hatter's Gala! Thanks to the support of all of our sponsors, including Presenting Sponsor Bear Mountain, guests, auction bidders and volunteers, we raised over $50,000 for after-school programs for kids in our community. We are amazed by everyone's generosity, fun and style, with so many getting in the spirit of the event with costumes and/or hats. Stay tuned for an announcement of 'save the date' for next year!
Another Pink Tutu Walk!
Ryan reprised the walk he undertook in 2012 to raise awareness about the impact - to both victim and perpetrator - of bulling and to raise funds for Boys & Girls Clubs after-school and anti-bullying programs.
The “Tutu Walk For Hope” – inspired by Pink Shirt Day, Ryan walked non-stop on Monday, March 14th leaving from Nanaimo’s Woodgrove Mall to Boys & Girls Club’s head office (123 km) in a pink tutu and tights in a quest to raise $5,000 to support Boys & Girls Club’s programs. He arrived just after 11 am accompanied by a few superheroes he picked up along the way! To date he has raised about $2,000 and we encourage people to make a donation to help Ryan meet his goal of $5,000 - donations can be made online at http://www.bgcvic.org/get-involved/donate-online/ and select Operating/Programs and then Other – type in Pink Tutu or Tutu Walk.

Care Family Information Nights
All young people need adults in their lives to talk to, depend on, and assist them in creating positive changes. They need to feel safe and that someone believes in them. They need homes that are safe, nurturing environments. If you have a supportive, nurturing home with room for one more, Boys and Girls Club urges you to open your doors to a youth who isn't lucky enough to have a place to call “home”. Click for flyer

Great Futures Start Here PSAs
The little miracles that happen every day at Boys & Girls Club Services of Greater Victoria can be summed up in the new public service announcements that have been launched by our national office. We are sharing the three videos, about Anthony Bennett, Dr. Jean Clinton and Taylor Hall, which illustrate how Boys & Girls Clubs create positive opportunities for young people to dream, grow and achieve their full potential. We just never know how far a child can go when we show kids we care and that we believe in them.
