Boys Town California Scores Again with Coto for the Cure

All throughout the year, all over the country, Boys Town ® locations are partnering with organizations to find creative ways to expand the reach of the Boys Town mission.

Recently, for the fourth year in a row, Boys Town California was chosen as the recipient of proceeds for the annual Coto for the Cure tennis fundraiser.

Held in late November about a mile from the Boys Town campus, the two-day event included a cocktail party with hors d'oeuvres and a tennis tournament. This year, food and drinks were provided by California Pizza Kitchen. Boys Town youth love to watch the event, and are even provided free food and drink throughout. Boys Town California Development Director Christina Garkovich adds: “our whole board supports the event and comes out for the party.”

Open to the public, funds are earned through ticket sales and a live auction. Amateurs bid on tennis pros to compete for a place on their teams. This year the tournament included its regular bill of professionals who play alongside amateurs on teams of two.

Garkovich goes on to say, “Coto for the Cure has been instrumental in helping Boys Town California raise over $129,000 over the last four years. We are continually grateful for their support of our mission and the kids and families we serve.”

Congratulations to Boys Town California and the Coto for the Cure team for orchestrating another successful event!
