The Boys and Girls Club of the Northland will host the Ball for Boys and Girls on Thursday, May 15th at Greysolon Ballroom. It's a chance to honor members of the Club, and to raise funds for needed youth programs.

Todd Johnson and Shawn Reed stopped by the show Tuesday morning.  "I know first hand the impact the Club can have...I myself was a Club member for many years," Todd told us. And kids these days are staying longer at the Club as parents work multiple jobs, so the need is great.

This is the 5th Annual Ball for Boys and Girls, held at Greysolon Ballroom. Ben Dery has been the MC the last few years for the auction.  There is a social hour starting at 5:30 p.m., followed by a silent auction, dinner at 7:00, and a live auction at 8:30.

Tickets are still available, you can get them online at bgcnorth.org.
