Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County hosted its 53rd Crystal Ball, themed and decorated for an entertaining Mardi Gras Celebration.  

The Crystal Ball Committee joined Co-Chairs Mike and Kim Hannegan as they welcomed over 400 generous donors and supporters.  The goal of the evening was to raise funds to provide endless possibilities that will lead to promising futures for the children served at the Clubs.  The event raised $190,000!
