The martinis were chilled, the mood was celebratory, and a terrific time was had by the 550 guests who attended Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad’s 33rd Annual Gala to celebrate “The Greatest Club On Earth!” at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa.

The dynamic Wayne Foster Music and Entertainment provided sensational sounds that kept the dance floor packed all night. Additional touches included a singing performance by Club members, a candy bar, a photo booth complete with dress-up props, and even a dancing stilt walker! The event was emceed by Kimberly Hunt and her husband, Billy Ray Smith. Honorary Chairs Ann and David Kulchin were recognized for their many significant contributions to not only the Boys & Girls Club, but the city of Carlsbad.

“I am so proud of the fun, memorable evening we created,” said Chair Barbi Nelson. “I loved seeing all of our guests take selfies wearing their clown noses!” Co-Chair Viola Wheelihan added “Thanks to the talented members of the event committee, we were able to exceed our fundraising goals, which means Carlsbad’s kids are the real winners.”

Proceeds from the event go directly towards operating funds for Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad, which has played an integral role in the Carlsbad community since 1952.
