Dec 02, 2015 02:00AM
Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau County presents its 9th annual benefit, the “Sweetheart Gala” to be held on February 13, 2016, at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. The event will feature a concert performance by William Joseph who, as a piano prodigy at age 8 was awarded a full music scholarship by Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The evening will include dinner prepared by the renowned Ritz-Carlton kitchen, cocktails, and an exciting silent auction. The benefit is a vital source of funding for the operation of the two local Boys & Girls Clubs, in Fernandina Beach and in Nassauville.

The silent auction features fun adventures, vacations at outstanding resorts, and autographed collectables – plus offerings from local restaurants, hotels, and gift shops. Bidding will begin in early February from the full list of auction items available at www.bgcnassau.com. Cost is $200 per person, and reservations can be made by calling (904) 261-8666 or by email at [email protected] The Boys & Girls Clubs benefit has sold out in recent years, so be sure to call or email soon for reservations. Information about sponsorship opportunities, which are available at several levels, is available from the same phone and email contacts.
