Auxiliary event a huge success
The Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville Auxiliary recently held its annual auction at Harbor Trees Clubhouse and it was the most successful event in club history.
Co-chairs Trish Crist, Shannon Cannatella and Betsy Horton organized the event, which serves to assist the staff of the club in programs for the youth, as well as to facilitate and support fund raising activities. Community Health Network sponsored the event, while Flaherty & Collins Properties, Klipsch and WealthCare Financial were gold-level sponsors.
“We could not be more thrilled with this year’s auction,” said Crist, president of the auxiliary. “The outpour of support, the attendance and participation were fantastic and this event sets the tone for what we do and what we are able to accomplish each year.”
Dedicated to inspiring and enabling all young people to reach their full potential, the club promotes leadership, character, health and physical development. As part of the event, Youth of the Year honoree Dylan McGuffey addressed the crowd about the important role the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville has played in his life, crediting the Club and staff for keeping him on the path to success.
“I can never pay back the love or time that the Club staff has given me. The Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville is not just a building, it is my second family and home,” he said.
During the event, several former and current club members read the Boys & Girls Club code aloud, including State Sen. Luke Kenley, Todd Thurston, Megan Houghtalen, Lihong Hanje, Olivia Morales and D’Ondra Jackson.
