Today is the Boys and Girls Clubs of Oakland’s 26th Annual Salute to Youth Gala and Benefit Auction. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Oakland’s mission is to develop the community’s youth into positive contributors to society. To accomplish this mission, BGCO provides programs and services that are tailored to the needs of today's youth and supplementary to the endeavors of families, our schools, and other community-based organizations.
This year’s Youth Gala and Auction honors the 2015 Youth of the Year, Mahlik A. Smith, a graduating senior from Oakland’s McClymonds High School. He is joined by a few of his fellow student-members from 3 BGCO Clubhouses, Mistress of Ceremonies Anne Makovec, Auctioneer Steve Haworth, and scores of local friends and supporters from the Greater Bay Area business and philanthropic community for a fun and purposeful evening dedicated to helping teens to achieve great futures.
