Help our cause by contributing to our fundraising efforts.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.



Boys & Girls Clubs of Venice and Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Los Angeles are proudly celebrating over 50 years of serving the community by improving the lives of every child that steps through our doors. Over 5,000 members ages 6-18 come through our doors each year, and over 70% of them are considered at-risk children from low-income families. This year's signature fundraising event will be held on Friday, September 27, 2019 at the Jonathan Beach Club in Santa Monica and will include a hosted reception, special performances by Club members, special guests Courtney B. Vance and notable honoree David Greenbaum, and silent and live auctions. Proceeds from the event directly fund the year-round educational leadership, mentoring and character-building programs offered by the Boys & Girls Clubs. In years past we have raised close to $500,000 in a single night and with the help of community partners such as yourself, we hope to raise even more!
