During this event, guests will have the opportunity to bid on 300-plus silent auction items and live auction items to help raise funds to support the Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Club.
This year, the Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Club will induct its second class of the Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Club Hall of Fame. Honorees are Gary Hall, Assemblyman Angelo Morinello and the Alphonso DiMino family. All have been longtime supporters of the Boys & Girls Club.
