This annual fundraising auction and event featured a lighting round Live Auction, comprised of ten packages, and a Special Appeal, providing guests with the opportunity to support Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland with direct support at a level of giving that is meaningful to them.

This “Night of Stars” allowed for Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland to roll out the red carpet for their supporters, and highlight their shining stars – the youth of Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland, and pay tribute to their Youth of the Year!

With LED lights hovering overhead in the Portland Art Museum’s Mark Ballroom, guests were reminded that by raising their paddles proudly during the Special Appeal and Live Auction, that they were in fact helping the youth of our community to quite literally reach for the stars!

As 1 in 4 children are living in poverty in Oregon, and gang activity has risen 40% in the last two years, opportunities provided by Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland play a monumental role in enabling young people within our community to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Joining in support of Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland, was American Singer Songwriter, Javier Colon, whom in 2011 won the inaugural season of the U.S. television show on NBC, The Voice, receiving $100,000 and signing a recording contract with Universal Republic Records.
