The funds came from the 21st annaul Gala at the Riverhouse -- an annual fundraiser for local non-profits.

 

The Boys and Girls Club of Central Oregon has been around for 18 years, but in recent years has run into some financial troubles.

 

Lisa Maxwell, the Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club, says this 200-thousand dollar gift will really help.

 

"The gift comes from individuals, sponsorships, seats sold and silent auction items.  The intent is to put the money in a separate account for lack of a better term, a rainy day fund.  So it does not help with annual operations, but it does help us with our goal to be self sufficient."

 

Maxwell says they will continue to raise funds to meet their operating expenses, but this allows them to start an endowment fund for the Boys and Girls Club.
