2023 Awards Night Honors Outstanding Youth

Family and friends gathered in the game room at the clubhouse for the 55th annual Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich’s Awards Night on Thursday, May 18, 2023. The event honors club members who are outstanding in their areas of choice.

“Awards Night is my favorite Club event,” said Don Palmer, Vice President of Programs & Youth Development. “It brings together extraordinary club members, parents, families and community leaders in celebration of great futures. It is the resounding ‘why’ as to why Boys & Girls Clubs are needed in every community giving kids positive outlets during out-of-school time.”

At the 2023 Awards Night, a Program Staff member spoke about each individual Club member and their exceptional achievements before presenting them with a special plaque, and a certificate of special recognition from the First Selectman’s Office.
