Vanessa Campagna will be joining us to sing at our VIP hour and during the Gala and we could not be more excited! She is not only an amazing singer and song writer but she is an Alumni of our Club!  

Join us and see her live! 

This rather unique evening features recognition of outstanding teens representing eight Boys & Girls Clubs in Western Pennsylvania.  They have been chosen out of more than 7,000 members for their leadership qualities, service to the community, exceptional morals, values and achievements at their local Boys & Girls Club.   One of these young adults will be selected as the Western Pennsylvania Youth of the Year and presented with the “Edward J. Ferris, Sr. Memorial Award”.


Meet our 2016 Candidates

Leading up to our Great Futures Gala, a playful competition among respected members of our community is happening!  Each have been challenged ability to raise funds for the Boys & Girls Club’s “Piggy Bank”.  The top three contestants whose bank is the fullest will be named at the Great Futures Gala and be asked to kiss our special guest, Nola, the most adorable mini-pig in Western Pennsylvania.  Nola has quite a following and is looking forward to joining us for dinner.

This is not your typical non-profit special event!  Simply a relaxing cruise along the Pittsburgh waterways, an evening that showcases the future leaders of our community, and some excitement brought about by our friend Nola.
