The 36th Annual Auction and Dinner in 2011 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Monica raised nearly $500,000.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica has announced details for its 37th Annual Auction and Dinner at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica later this year.

Last year’s event raised nearly $500,000 for club programs and the organization is hoping to repeat the success again on Friday, Nov. 2.

This exciting event will gather civic and business leaders and hundreds of community members for an evening of silent and live auctions and a chance to mix and mingle with Club supporters over delectable hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and a dinner in the Starlight Ballroom.

The event will honor Monsignor Lloyd Torgerson and the St. Monica’s School and Parish for their generous support of the Club and the community.

This event is the club’s largest source of unrestricted funding, which helps to ensure it can continue to enhance and expand its programs to the youth of the Santa Monica community.

Its success depends upon the support of the community.
