BBQ Bash 4 the Boys was Fun for All!

Posted by on May 23, 2018 in Events, News | 0 comments

An overcast day gave way to sunshine just as guests arrived for BBQ Bash 4 the Boys at our El Nido Campus. Surrounded by the foothills of Altadena, the intimate campus was decked out in festive summer colors, making it the perfect setting for a night of barbecue, beer and blues.

Family fun abounded at the Flash Life Photo Booth and life-size versions of chess, Connect Four, and Jenga.

Our Kids Corner had the little ones mesmerized by the whimsy of Bubblemania’s giant bubblemakers, storytime with Book and Cookies LA’s Chudney Ross, and Artistic LA’s face painting station.

And, the Mid-City Ramblers kept things rocking with classic blues that had guests dancing throughout the evening.

There were many opportunities to give back during the event. Artists of all ages added to the live mural created specially for El Nido’s young residents to enjoy long after the night was over.

Other guests supported Hathaway-Sycamores by bidding on a special art collection called “Choice and Chance” created by foster youth living on campus, and through the purchase of mystery boxes containing fun prizes.

Many guests toured the facilities and went “shopping,” directly impacting the boys’ experience at El Nido by purchasing items for their bedrooms such as new furniture, linens and more.

Thank you to all our wonderful supporters who could join us on the night. Proceeds from the event will go directly towards further renovation of El Nido Campus to make it as loving and warm as possible for the boys living there as well as their visiting families.
