Giving Thanks Dinner 2016
November 17, 2016
With almost 300 folks attending to eat and make merry, we almost ran out of room at our annual Giving Thanks Dinner. We were so happy to be able to provide a good meal for our members, and to help everyone engage with the staff, board and other Club families. Check out an amazing album of Club families who attended this dinner, from our WBGC Facebook page.
Halloween Hoopla 2016
October 29, 2016
We had our largest turnout ever (and lines around the block for half the event!) at the Halloween Hoopla, with approximately 700 neighbors showing up to attend. The highlight this year was definitely the scary upstairs haunted house. Our wonderful friends at the Northwest Organization for Theatrical Role Play put on an amazing show, as usual, and everyone agreed that this year's haunted house was one of our scariest ever. Of course younger attendees were not disappointed with the Wizard's Lair, which provided more family-friendly entertainment from the Wizard Vordak and his assistant Zepherella. Carnival games, crafts and trick-or-treating made everyone happy and in the spooky spirit, and we also collected hundreds of cans of food for the Familyworks Food Bank.
Annual Celebration and Silent Auction 2016
June 3, 2016
On Friday, June 3 we had a Lego-themed, totally awesome evening honoring Club members, staff, board and friends. A highlight included honoring six of our Club's graduating high school seniors and longtime members, who are off to college, vocational school, or a year of service. Drama Matters entertained the crowd with a rousing number from "Grease," and Bryan Graf was honored as our board member of the year. Our silent auction, dessert dash, and event sponsors also helped us raised over $21,000 to support Club programs. Thank you to all who attended.

Approximately 500-600 friends and neighbors visited the Club to take part in our annual Halloween Hoopla. This wonderful event is always a highlight of the year and this one was no different. Older guests enjoyed a spooky demented clown-themed haunted house, while the Wizard's Lair delighted the younger kids. There were carnival games, arts and crafts, trick-or-treating and more - all for only $1 admission. Thank you to the many volunteers and businesses that supported this event and made it a success!
