OXNARD, Calif.— The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme is seeking sponsors for its 22nd Annual Donald K. Facciano KidsAuction to be held 5:30 – 10 p.m., Nov. 19 at the Residence Inn by Marriott Hotel, 2101 W. Vineyard Ave., Oxnard. Also known as the Black and White Gala, the event is the organization’s largest special event fundraiser. All proceeds help fund programs at the 18 Boys & Girls Clubs sites within Oxnard and Port Hueneme, which serve more than 7,500 youth.

This year’s auction event will honor the Gene Haas Foundation for its contributions to the Club and to the community. The evening will include silent and live auctions, a gourmet dinner, cocktails, wine, and a vodka and tequila tasting. Noted ventriloquist/comedian Kevin Johnson will provide entertainment.

“The success of the annual auction depends solely on the generosity of corporate partners, sponsors and other donors in the community,” said Tim Blaylock, Chief Professional Officer. “In addition to the opportunity to support our kids, supporters benefit from getting involved with branding, marketing and networking opportunities. There are many ways to get involved, including donating items, becoming a sponsor or purchasing admission and raffle tickets to help support BGCOP’s programs and services.”
