A ballerina, an astronaut, an all-star athlete. If kids can dream it, Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Texas can help them become it. At Boys & Girls Clubs, it’s not just about one thing. It’s about caring professionals who teach life lessons. It’s about moments that matter. It’s about a safe, fun place where kids and teens can imagine and realize their potential. It’s about A Place to Become.

This 4th year event is the signature event for the Rockwall branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Texas and is the largest fundraiser for the organization. If you aren’t familiar with what the Boys & Girls Club does, it’s very simple – we take
the kids who need us most, and we provide targeted and outcome driven programming that allows kids to be more academically successful, live healthier lifestyles, and demonstrate better character & citizenship so they have a chance as
adults to achieve the American dream and positively impact our society.

Also available at this event is the opportunity for guests to join the HERO Society for the 2019 calendar year. The HERO society is a group of people who have pledged to sponsor a youth for a calendar year at the club for $50 a month or $600 a year.
