Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito held the annual Youth of the Year Celebration "Country Nights" Aug. 3, at the Del Mar Racetrack Infield Pavilion. This year's event included evening horse racing, silent and live auctions, a wine pull, gourmet dinner, themed entertainment, music and dancing with DJ Danny & 35 Productions, and the announcement of the 2018 Youth of the Year Award winner. Net proceeds raised help provide funding for positive activities that allow children to learn, grow and develop healthy lifestyles within a safe and nurturing environment.
The winner of the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito Youth of the Year Award will receive a $1,000 educational scholarship sponsored by Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito Foundation and will compete in the local and possibly state and regional levels for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. This culminates in five regional winners meeting in Washington D.C. to compete for the National Youth of the Year title and a $25,000 college scholarship, renewable for up to four years (totaling $100,000).
