This summer golf tournament takes place at one of Syracuse’s most inviting courses. The Clubhouse Classic is a wonderful opportunity for corporations to gain visibility while enjoying a day on the green.


Boys & Girls Clubs of America's premier youth recognition program promotes and celebrates Club members' service to the Club, community and family; academic performance; spiritual values; life goals, poise and public speaking ability. The Youth of the Year program is most effective when used as a year-round tool for fostering young people's personal growth and leadership qualities. Local Clubs recognize Youths of the Month and select a Youth of the Year, who then participates in a state competition. State winners participate in regional competition. Five regional winners receive a $5,000 scholarship and an opportunity to compete on the national level. The National Youth of the Year receives an additional $10,000 scholarship and an official installation as Youth of the Year by the President of the United States.

Since 2001 the Boys & Girls Clubs of Syracuse has proudly hosted the Annual Hoops for Hope Dinner to benefit youth programs. The dinner is held in the fall at the beginning of the college basketball season. It is a wonderful opportunity for our corporate partners to get a glimpse of how their investment in the Boys & Girls Clubs is making a difference. The presence of the Syracuse University men's basketball team, and Coach Jim Boeheim makes this event a thrill for all in attendance, kids and adult SU fans alike.
