Boys & Girls Club of Greater Ventura (BGCGV) has been selected as a 2018 California Nonprofit of the Year by Assemblymember Monique Limón, 37th District.
Patti Birmingham, BGCGV CEO along with Maria Ventura, SoCalGas Public Affairs Manager and BGCGV Board President traveled to Sacramento and joined with one hundred other nonprofit leaders honored by their state senators and assemblymembers during a celebration luncheon as part of California Nonprofits Day on June 6th.
With an emphasis on academic success, good character and citizenship and healthy lifestyle programming, 97% of their members are on track to graduate from high school and become productive citizens.
“The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Ventura offered free childcare and activities during a community emergency. They helped hundreds of families affected by the Thomas Fire find needed child care when schools were closed which alleviated a major financial burden for families. I am proud to honor them as the 2018 Nonprofit of the Year for Assembly District 37” said Assemblymember Monique Limón.
“It is an honor and privilege to serve children and their families for the last 80 years, and especially during the recent natural disasters. On behalf of our CEO Patti Birmingham, staff and board members – we are deeply humbled to be recognized by Assemblymember Monique Limón as a Nonprofit of the Year,” comments Maria Ventura.
