What an amazing Breakfast! Thank you to everyone who attended our 14th Annual Great Futures for Kids Breakfast April 7 at the Residence Inn by Marriott Hotel. More than 250 people supported the mission of our Club by sponsoring a youth. As a result more than $118,000 was raised that morning. We are proud to share this was the highest grossing Breakfast in our organizations history. These funds will go towards much needed quality programs and services for the Club’s 9,200+ youth.

Andrew Firestone, philanthropist, reality TV show personality (ABC’s The Bachelor), and heir to the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company emceed the event, while keynote speaker Mario Bonds, singer, songwriter and author, shared his story of perseverance and success. By age 9, Bonds lost both his parents and his vision. A childhood of abuse followed, including abandonment, poverty and homelessness. He now uses his experience to motivate young people to tackle their own difficult circumstances head-on and realize their full potential.

The Great Futures for Kids Breakfast is an Annual Community fundraiser where attendees celebrate and support BGCOP’s important work in the community.

Since 1954, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme has strived to fulfill its mission of enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Our organization serves over 9,200 youth and teens through membership and community outreach, helping them grow into healthy, productive, successful young people prepared to achieve great futures.Donors at the Great Futures for Kids Breakfast helps make this work possible.

 

California Resources Corporation continued their support for our kids by returning as the Presenting Sponsor.
