Each of our fun annual events is vital to ensuring Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley has the funding and awareness to make our programs available to all Sonoma Valley youth. By supporting our events through attendance, donation, volunteering, or sponsorship, you make it possible for us to continue helping our community’s future leaders discover their true potential. Our events are also an important way for us to acknowledge exceptional Club members as well as individuals, companies, donors, and volunteers that support us throughout the year.
- Sweetheart Gala & Auction
The Sweetheart Gala & Auction sells out yearly and is one of the most popular events in Sonoma Valley! Each year we celebrate a special honoree, or “Sweetheart” while raising funds that benefit Sonoma Valley youth. The event kicks off the first Saturday in February at 5 pm with a cocktail reception, followed by an elegant multi-course dinner. The silent and live auctions feature select getaways, one-of-a-kind experiences, premium wine, and other exciting lots. The fun doesn’t stop there, though! The afterparty features dancing, sweet and savory bites, and fun casino games.
- Lobster in the Vineyard
Join us for a magical summer evening held at a beautiful private Sonoma Valley estate! Lobster in the Vineyard takes place every July and features premium wine and beer, a fantastic lobster feast, and live music. Enjoy visiting with friends, delicious food, and the beautiful surrounding vineyards and oak canopy as the sun sets behind the mountains.
- Fairways Fore Futures Golf Classic
Our Fairways Fore Futures Golf Classic event is held the fourth Monday in August at the stunning Sonoma Golf Club. Join us for breakfast and a fun-filled round of golf for players of every skill level. Hit the fairway for the future of our kids in Sonoma! Bring your friends and be sure to stick around until the afternoon for our award reception, prize raffle, and dinner! Sign up early, as this event sells out yearly.
- Youth of the Year
Our Youth of the Year event celebrates our amazing Club members and their accomplishments every November. Our premier youth recognition program recognizes Members of the Year from all seven of our sites; we also present the Carole Downing Volunteer Award and the Athlete of the Year Award. In addition, four Youth of the Year Finalists are selected from Teen Club to share their personal stories of hard work and success. Scholarships are awarded to all Youth of the Year Finalists courtesy of the Chuck Williams Endowment Fund for Education.
