04 DECEMBER 2017 / SNF Attends the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club Christmas Tree Ball

On Friday, December 1st, the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club hosted their 51st Annual Christmas Tree Ball in New York City. The event was attended by friends and supporters of the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club, including representatives of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

The Madison Square Boys and Girls Club has been a longstanding grantee of the SNF. The SNF has supported MSBGC in terms of programming and general operating, as well as capital support for the construction of the Harlem Clubhouse.

The Madison Square Boys and Girls Club provides targeted programs to the young people that need them most, helping members build their academic, social and emotional skills, plan for college and career, and develop leadership capabilities in the Club and community.

The Clubhouses provide life-changing programs and supportive relationships to help members advance towards three priority outcomes: academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. They are open after school, on most school holidays, and during the summer. MSBGC serves more than 5,000 youth annually, ages 6-18 at their 4 Clubhouses in Brooklyn and the Bronx. In 2016, 100% of their seniors graduated from high school.
