May 1, 2017 – On April 7, over 180 community leaders and supporters attended the Boys & Girls Club of St. Helena and Calistoga’s (BGCSHC) 2017 Calistoga Breakfast for Kids. The fourth annual event raised $68,450 to benefit the youth of the organization, Teen Center and Youth Diversion & Intervention Program.
At the event, keynote speaker Adrianne Haslet discussed the importance of not giving up, even when others tell you something cannot be done. She inspired attendees, focusing her speech on setting goals and doing what you can to accomplish those goals. In addition, attendees got another chance to see the renderings for the new Calistoga Clubhouse.
Among the attendees were Crystal Geyser Plant Manager Carmen Maib and Human Resources Director Janice Almond. The company recently contributed $20,000 to support the “Great Futures Capital Campaign” for a new facility in Calistoga, which will open this fall. The campaign is centered around ‘building a positive place for kids.’ To-date, more than $9.5 million has been raised, and construction of the 14,500 square-foot facility reached the halfway point. The clubhouse will be located at 1401 N. Oak Street, between the community pool and fairgrounds.
Crystal Geyser Communications Manager Jill Harris says the company is honored to support the BGCSHC Great Futures Campaign and is looking to build programs that will strengthen support in the years to come.
