Founded in 1971, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County is a not-for profit youth development organization. The clubs provide more than a safe, fun and constructive alternative to being home alone — they offer a variety of award-winning developmental programs to help youth build skills, self-esteem and values during critical periods of growth.

The clubs provide services during non-school hours, as well as summer camp opportunities, to nearly 6,000 boys and girls between the ages of 6 to 18. The clubs emphasize educational, vocational, social, recreational, health, leadership and character-building skills in a positive and safe atmosphere. Through quality programs, the club experience provides children with the guidance they need to make a healthy transition from childhood to young adulthood.

Sponsorships and foursomes for the Oct. 10 golf tournament are still available. For more information, contact Kristen Cummins at (561) 683-3287 or
