Join us for our most heartwarming event highlighting and celebrating our inspiring teens and their Club journeys.

This event captures the spirit and mission of the BGCW.  Guests at the event will listen to moving speeches by the candidates detailing the impact that the Club has had on their lives.

The Youth of the Year also recognizes our youth for their outstanding achievements. The winner then competes at the state level, then can move on to the national levels. Only one nominee will be chosen as this year’s Youth of the Year!

General Admission $25 includes hors d'oeuvre reception plus awards presentation. Sponsorships $1,000 - $7,500 include preferred seating.

For questions, please contact Alexis B. at (562) 561-63315 or
