Springfield Boys & Girls Club Family Center holds gala to raise money for programs

Hampden County

The Springfield Boys & Girls Club Family Center held their fifth annual Great Futures Gala Thursday night.

The gala, which took place at the Sheraton, featured dinner, a silent auction, and a keynote address from educational consultant Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu. 

The club hopes to raise $15,000 for their programs.

“It’s our annual fundraising event to raise funds to help our preschool, our after-school programs, our teen programs so that we can keep the children off the streets, and actually welcome in the community,” said business manager Nyasia Debois.

The Boys & Girls Club is gearing up for their busy season with kids almost out of school for the summer.
