Be Great 2020

We are so sorry we had to cancel our Be Great Gala on March 19th! We were disappointed… but keeping our community safe is our first priority.

All is not lost, however! With so much technology at our fingertips, we’ve decided to have the gala online.
We hope you’ll join us for our Virtual Gala on our website on MONDAY, JUNE 1st.

Be Great playbill 

Please help us celebrate our wonderful honorees and see our children perform the songs they’ve been working on for so long. They’re still practicing at home and will be sending us videos that we will combine for your viewing pleasure.

Canceling our gala completely would have a heavy price tag for us. Proceeds from the gala provide us with much needed funds that we use to prepare our young people to succeed in life.

The pandemic has been an unprecedented challenge for the communities we serve. When it’s all over, our families and children will need us more than ever. Imagine New Rochelle WITHOUT the Boys and Girls Club: so much potential would be untapped. We are vital to the community and to the young people we serve.

But we don’t exist without you.

Won’t you please join us in spirit online, even though we can’t have you join us in person? You’d make a tremendous difference if you bought a sponsorship, ticket or journal ad. Our children—whose lives have already been unimaginably disrupted by these events beyond anyone’s control—would still have a place to go and grow, once the epidemic is behind us. Please help us help them. 


Please join us, virtually on the web, for "Be Great" Live Dinner Theater
