A Kentucky Derby themed fundraiser by Monrovia's Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills at the Santa Anita Race Track raised thousands of dollars for youth programs and honored Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz with the Mary Wilcox Youth Advocacy Award.

Lutz, a longtime supporter of the club and its youth programs, said, "Of all the awards I have received in my career, this means the most."

Albert Tate, pastor of Fellowship Monrovia, led the audience in a "Change a Life" challenge that resulted in $40,000 raised in just five minutes.

"Thanks to the generosity of all our supporters who have given us their time and incredible gifts, more 'Great Futures' are in our future," said John Wilson, Executive Director.

The event's major sponsors included The Boone Foundation, Blaine & Lynda Fetter, Volkswagen Pasadena/Alhambra, the Sierra Family of Dealerships, and Monte & Meghan Baier.
