Great futures start here. Our annual Humanitarian Awards Dinner is the Boys & Girls Club of Northern Westchester’s largest fundraising effort of the year. Proceeds from the event provide Club scholarships to those youth most at risk, as well as funding for programs in character and leadership development, academic support, physical fitness, swimming, nutrition, arts and career training. Over 500 kids visit the Club each day to participate in these life changing programs. In addition, each year the Club serves over 80,000 free meals to the kids in our after school care programs. Please help us continue to provide these services to our kids and sponsor, donate or attend!
Our honorees! This year BGCNW is proud to present the Humanitarian Award to Annica and Daniel van Starrenburg, CEO, SavATree. The van Starrenburgs and SavATree have graciously supported the Club through community outreach, volunteering and donations, helping create great futures for generations to come. BGCNW is also extremely honored to present the John Beach Award to BGCNW Director of Operations and former Club kid, Barbara Cutri, who, during her 35-year tenure at the Club, has devoted her career and countless hours to designing and running all Club programming, helping kids be their best and shaping the citizens of tomorrow.
This year's event will take place at the beautiful Birdstone Farm in Cross River, NY.
