The Ethan Allen Hotel ballroom and foyer were transformed on Saturday, November 6th for the return of the annual Boys & Girls Club “Great Futures Celebration” gala. Honoring both the 2020 and 2021 recipients of the Champion for Youth awards, and highlighting speeches by Club staff, supporters, and youth, the evening went off without a hitch. Both the silent and paddle auctions were successful in raising much needed funds to support the ongoing mission of the Club. Together with my friend Christine Carnicelli, I was lucky enough to be honored as the 2020 Champion For Youth, while Christine received the 2021 honor. After a fabulous dinner catered by Gallo, the drinks, dancing and merry making continued into the late hours of the night. Truly a gala to remember!
