Celebrating 85 years of service to children and youth in the community, the 14th Annual Black Tie & Burgers gala took place on Saturday, October 15th at the Mackenzie-Scott Clubhouse. Entitled Back to the 80s, the event transported guests back to the 1980s, with big hair and shoulder pads.
It was a rad night filled with burgers from The Habit Burger Grill, amazing silent and live auction items, birthday celebrations, and dancing to live music from the ’80s cover band 80z All Stars! All proceeds benefit the Boys & Girls Club Pasadena programs which are focused on academic success, healthy lifestyles, and character and leadership development.
Since 1937, the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena has enriched the lives of young people in our community, enabling them to reach their full potential as productive, caring, healthy, and responsible citizens. Serving more than 2,000 youth, ages 5 – 18 annually, BGCP focuses on Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyle, and Good Character and Leadership. The Club experience fills the gap between school and home – year-round – providing a welcoming, safe and positive environment in which kids and teens have fun, participate in life-changing programs, make friends and find encouragement with caring adults. The Club operates four locations in the Pasadena area: Slavik Branch on E. Del Mar Blvd., Mackenzie-Scott Branch on N. Fair Oaks Avenue, and two Pasadena/Altadena locations at Odyssey Charter Schools’ North and South campuses.
