Please contribute to Boys & Girls Club auction

To the Editor:

We are writing to invite members of the community to participate in a very special event, the 15th annual auction to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley in Milford.

For over 20 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley (the Club) has been in the forefront of youth development in our community, with a particular focus on providing op­portunities for young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances. Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to be great today and reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens tomorrow.

This year’s auction will be held on Saturday, Nov. 21, at our facility in Milford. This is the Boys & Girls Club’s largest fundraiser, and its suc­cess is vital to the hundreds of chil­dren that attend our Club programs each year. In addition to supporting important services for youth and families in our community, the event raises critical funds for low-income youths unable to attend Boys & Girls Club programs without the benefit of financial assistance.

Please consider contributing an item to the auction. The item can be donated by you, your employer or both. We are also seeking advertisers and sponsors for our event. This is a great way to demonstrate your sup­port and help make a real impact on the youths we serve.

For event questions, please contact Kevin Salemi, director of develop­ment and marketing, at 672-1002, ext. 23, or email ksalemi@svbgc.org. Visit our website at www.svbgc.org for our latest auction updates.

Thank you in advance for your sup­port of this important event. Together, we can make a difference!
