On June 8, Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills will host an event in honor of the local high school club members who graduated in the Class of 2016. The celebration, at the Mary Wilcox Youth Center in Monrovia, was made possible through a grant from the Taco Bell Foundation. Festivities will include a DJ, Taco Bell catering, games, and special awards for 8th graders and graduating seniors.
"Our goal for every child who walks through our doors is that they stay on track to graduate from high school on time, prepared for higher education and a successful career," says John Wilson, Executive Director of Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills. "We appreciate the Taco Bell Foundation for recognizing and celebrating our new grads and committing to our future ones through the Foundation's long-term support right here in Monrovia."
The grant to Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills is part of a partnership between the Taco Bell Foundation and Boys & Girls Clubs of America that is expected to raise $30 million to support more young people through high school graduation and beyond.
