Spring Thaw

 

One of the primary duties of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities is to plan Spring Thaw, our annual Spring gala. This is one of our most exciting events of the year, with live music, a variety of food stations, live and silent auctions, and more! Spring Thaw 2020 will be held on Saturday, March 7 at Quincy Hall

Who We Are:

The Associate Board started in 2009 with the purpose of fostering engagement, volunteerism, and financial support for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities through a group of young professionals who share a passion for our local youth’s development. Over the past nine years the board has grown from 5 board members to 40, ranging in age from 23 – 39 years old, all with careers in different industries and organizations.  

Board Member Engagement:

The Associate Board provides an excellent opportunity for civic-minded professionals to involve themselves in their community, develop leadership skills and network with peers. Associate Board members host numerous fundraising and social events throughout the year as well as regularly scheduled group volunteer outings at Club sites. Established in 2009, the Associate Board has flourished as an accompanying entity to the existing Board of Directors and Women’s Association in promoting the growth of the Boys & Girls Clubs. Associate Board members work hand-in-hand with Board of Directors members on committees determining broad programmatic and development initiatives for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities, offering a unique role of action and influence.  

Meetings:

The Associate Board meets regularly 1-2 times each month to learn more about the Clubs, engage in volunteer opportunities, and brainstorm event and fundraising ideas!
