The Boys & Girls Club of Pharr hosts several Special Events throughout the year. Each Special Event is geared towards the club members and their parents, as well as for Board Member Participation.
Youth of the Year Competition
The goal of this event is to recognize exceptional Boys & Girls Club youth and give them the voice and path to showcase personal development and achieve their dreams. This event is held because club members deserve to be recognized for their character, personal growth, leadership qualities and outstanding achievements. Such youth demonstrate what can be achieved by participating in Boys & Girls Clubs.
End of Summer Program
This program is offered to give club members the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of our summer audience and their parents. Club members of all ages have the opportunity to dance, sing, act or receive one of the many awards that are handed out each year.
This program gives community youth the opportunity to enter a safe Haunted House without having to pay a lot of money. Teen club members volunteer to put this house together one month in advance. This event is held for three days and is conducted in our club gym.
This program is offered to all club members and community members as well as their families. This event gives the entire community the opportunity to share stories in a festive environment. Also, some of our club members many not have a Thanksgiving Dinner with their family. This is why there is no charge for this event. Staff members work very hard to get 100% of the items used for this event donated.
This celebration is offered to all of our club members and their parents. Club members get to see the original Santa Clause right before they get to pick out a present. Club parents aren't left out of this celebration, as they receive raffle prizes throughout the night. This program is made possible through the very hard work of the Marine Reserves Toys for Tots program.
