Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco had one of their two annual Girls Night Out and Boys Night Out events on March 7th and 8th.  This event pairs a child with a caring, positive adult role-model from the community for an evening of fun and games at the Columbia Park Clubhouse located at 450 Guerrero Street.  Close to 200 adults volunteered  for the event!

On each evening, 100 children from nine Clubhouses from around the city are driven to the Colombia Park Clubhouse location where they enjoy dancing, games, arts and crafts and an opportunity to have their picture taken by a professional photographer.  And a great meal!  According to Brittany Johnson, Director of Marketing and Public Relations:  “It’s an incredibly popular event that has gained traction over the years.  In fact this year, both events sold out in one month, the fastest we’ve ever seen!”  You can tell from the photos that everyone was having a great time dancing, playing games and doing some arts and crafts.  A great time for everyone!
