More youngsters will get the chance to join in educational — and fun — activities at the Boys & Girls Club, thanks to a tapping party at Gordon Biersch.
The club provides after-school and summer programs for boys and girls ages 6 to 18 in Burbank and the East Valley. Youngsters are offered opportunities in leadership training, health and life skills, education and career development and the arts as well as sports and fitness.
The fundraiser honored the brewery restaurant's 25th anniversary on July 9. Proceeds will go to the club's scholarship fund, allowing more youngsters to attend the summer and school-year programs, said Chief Executive Officer Shanna Warren.
This was the second time Gordon Biersch coordinated a fundraiser for the club and it drew more people than the first event, Warren said. Half of those attending are special patrons of the restaurant who come to support the tapping nights.
