Become A Partner

The goal for this fun, yet purposeful event is to raise the necessary funding to sustain the Boys & Girls Clubs of York County throughout 2017. Each year, we welcome new sponsors and in-kind donors who share in our mission of creating GREAT FUTURES for local youth. As a sponsor, your support allows children and teens to learn, grow and develop healthy lifestyles within a safe, nurturing environment. Your generous donation will provide us sufficient funds to continue our GREAT work with the York County children and families who count on us every day. Your support will help open the door to a GREAT FUTURE for a child who, without your help, may have never had an opportunity to attend the Club or program.
