Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Salt Lake raised a record-breaking $218,000 at the BE Great Gala at the Salt Lake City Marriott Downtown at City Creek on May 10. Guests enjoyed silent and live auctions, cocktails, dinner, music and dancing. A new attendance record was set with over 300 guests, and a record $67,000 was raised during a raise-the-paddle ask during the live auction. Mark Koelbel and Shauna Lake of KUTV2 were this year’s emcees, and Evelyn Salazar, the 2014 Utah State Youth of the Year, spoke on her experience with Boys & Girls Clubs since she was 5 years old. President and CEO LeAnn Saldivar and Board Chair Kellie Williams also spoke. This year’s sponsors included Wells Fargo, Jeff and Helen Cardon, Delcam, Goldman Sachs, Fidelity Investments, Mark Miller Subaru, RBC Wealth Management and Solution Reach. Proceeds will benefit thousands of kids served by Boys & Girls Clubs in Salt Lake and Tooele.
