Boys & Girls Club of Metro Queens Youth Of The Year Dinner

  • Home

More than 400 guests attended the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Queens “Youth of the Year” Dinner honoring First Central Savings Bank; Scott Molina, President of Resorts World Casino NYC; and D. Thomas Ruttura, President of Ruttura & Sons Construction. The dinner raised over $345,000 to directly benefit the club’s educational and recreational programs serving over 3,000 children.

A highlight of the evening was hearing from the three “Youth of the Year” finalists who did an amazing job of telling their personal stories about how the club has impacted their lives. Congratulations to Lola, a sophomore at Forest Hills High School, on being named the club’s 2018 “Youth of the Year.” She will serve as an ambassador for the club, receive a college scholarship, and will go on to compete in May for the New York State “Youth of the Year” title.

The club thanked their “sponsors, honorees, board of directors and attendees who helped make the evening a tremendous success,” with a special thank you to their sponsors, “We truly value your support.”
