Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Clubs was established in 1936 and our very first Club, located at 17th Street, is still standing and, 80 years later, remains an anchor in the community while other youth serving agencies are closing their doors.

Over the years we have expanded our reach from 1 to 8 locations throughout the City of Niagara Falls.

Eight-five percent of our Clubs are located in the poorest communities in Niagara County and our members are among the most at risk for academic failure, alcohol, tobacco and substance abuse, premature sexual experimentation, violence, gang activity and juvenile delinquency.

Today, we are working to build a focus on academic success, career development and leadership and building healthy youth and families, so the Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Club will truly be THE place where Great Futures Start.

We have an annual membership of over 1,400 young people who range in age from 5 – 21. Every day, caring, professional staff seek to enrich the lives of girls and boys who need us most and we are dedicated to ensuring that our community's disadvantaged youngsters have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures.

The 34th Annual Auction is Saturday, May 21st at the Niagara Falls Conference and Events Center. 

Tickets are $80 per ticket and tables of 10 are available. 

There will be silent and live auctions, raffles as well as food stations and an open bar from 6 - 10pm.
