Christmas in July Gala (P.I.)

July 13, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 11:59 pm

“WHO AND WHY
1 in 5 kids is alone, afraid, and in danger. 1 in 4 leaves school every day with nowhere to go. When school is out, the Club is in. The Boys & Girls Club is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that serves children ages 5-18; we provide a safe, fun place where great futures are made possible with evidence-based programming and caring staff. We serve 450 native and non-native youth in Maine; over 200 of whom are local to Presque Isle. Your donations and time make great futures happen.

“Our Presque Isle site houses the CEO, Nichole Francis, and is nationally recognized as a premier organization with one in a million staff. We are so proud of who we are what we do!

“WHAT
This event is our 4th Annual Christmas in July Gala! Here we have a lot of fun while fundraising for the Clubs. This year the fundraiser is a masquerade! Don your favorite colombina or volto (yea, we Googled that), snag a mask from us at the gala, or don’t wear one at all! Dress to impress and we’ll worry about the rest.

“Your ticket includes a seated meal, a string quartet, and access to our live and silent auctions.

“WHERE and WHEN
Meet us at the University of Maine Campus Center on July 13th for a night you won’t forget. Doors open at 5:30 and the program begins at 6:00 PM. Pro tip: when you arrive early it’s faster to snag a drink from Bow Tie Bartending and a group shot (or four) in the photo booth.

“THE POKER TOURNAMENT
Following the gala, there will be a poker tournament in the Owl’s Nest! We’ll keep you updated on all the details. Expect music and drinks while you have fun for charity” (https://www.facebook.com/events/1959788164317929/).

*********

“Why not celebrate Christmas in July, for a great cause! You’re invited to the Penobscot Boys’ and Girls’ Club’s Christmas in July Gala on Saturday, July 13th, for an evening of dinner and music, along with a live and silent auction. The event will be held at the University of Maine at Presque Isle’s Campus Center, Presque Isle, Maine.

“Proceeds from the event will be used to allow us to expand our services and program for children of the Presque Isle, Maliseet, and Sipayik Boys & Girls Clubs including the surrounding towns in Maine. Since the ’90s, all Native clubs in Maine have been providing a positive place for youth Native and non-Native. The Penobscot Boys and Girls Club is a non-profit organization who acts as the umbrella organization for the rest of the Clubs in Maine. The mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
