MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. – The Boys & Girls Club of Northern Westchester started preparing for its annual Humanitarian Award Dinner recently at Café of Love in Mount Kisco.

Club supporters gathered to celebrate its success and began planning for the June gala. This year, the club will honor outgoing Executive Director Brian Skanes as Humanitarian of the Year.

After 21 years of service, Skanes will be stepping down from his post at the BGCNW on April 10 to become director of major metro services for Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

The June gala will also honor TD Bank as the John Beach Award recipient in recognition of its generous financial support of the club’s youth programming and services.

Funds raised from the annual gala, which will be held on Saturday, June 6, at the Hilton Westchester, make up one-third of the club’s yearly fundraising efforts, said  Alyzza Ozer, chief development officer. This year, the club hopes to raise $500,000 to ensure BGCNW continues serving its 1,700 members through programs promoting healthy lifestyles, academic success and citizenship.

The club provides 60,000 meals and snacks annually to its members, enables 100 percent of its at-risk high school seniors to graduate on time and has encouraged a sense of responsibility to give back to the community that is felt by more than 80 percent of its members.

Registration for the Humanitarian Award Dinner is now open. Click here to register.
