Thank You! Our It’s Magic Gala was a Great Success!


Skagit County Makes it a Magical Night for Kids!

On Friday, November 7th, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County held its Annual Gala event to raise funds for operations of the four Clubs located in Anacortes, La Conner, Mount Vernon and Sedro-Woolley. “It’s Magic!” took place at the new Christ the King event center in Burlington. With many Silent and Live Auction items to choose from, there was something for everyone, and as a result, bids reached all-time highs on many items.

The generosity of the Skagit community was in full force throughout the evening as auctioneer Tom Pasma and guest Emcee Rob Martin led the audience through the program. Boys & Girls Club supporters from all parts of the County were in attendance, and there was a celebrity sighting, as Scooter the Beer Guy, famed for his presence as a vendor at Mariners and Seahawks games, joined the effort as a special guest beer steward and a spotter during the Live Auction. Guests were treated to remarks by 2014 Youth of the Year Bobby Castro who is currently attending the University of Washington, in addition to commentary from Club kids representing all of our communities.

The night was an incredible success, with more than $145,000 raised for youth in Skagit County, a 50% increase over the previous year. Because of generous sponsorships from many Skagit County businesses and organizations, all money raised that night will go directly to the Boys & Girls Clubs implementing its mission; to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. “As we enter the holiday season, I’m so thankful for the philanthropy demonstrated by our community,” said Annette Booth, President of the Board of Directors for the Club. She went on to praise the collective effort that made the evening truly magical, “Our Gala Committee really wrapped themselves into making this a big year for the organization. On behalf of myself and co-chair Stephanie Hooper, we’d like to thank everyone who was a part of making it such a magical night for kids.”

Thank you to our Board, Gala Committee, Attendees, Bidders, Volunteers, Employees, CTK Staff, Community Investors and Sponsors!

Thank You to all of our Supporters!
