For those of you who were planning to attend our 2020 Youth of the Year Awards Ceremony, we want to thank you for your support of the Boys & Girls Clubs in Colorado (BGCC) and our young people. Your ticket purchase helps us deliver an exciting experience for the young people who travel from around the state to attend.
However, the threat of COVID-19 has required BGCC to take necessary precautions in order to secure the safety and wellbeing of our young people, Club staff, and guests. On Tuesday, Governor Polis declared a state of emergency in Colorado with regards to COVID-19, and many local and state-wide organizations have cancelled upcoming conferences and/ events.
After much deliberation and with a heavy heart, BGCC and its leadership team have decided it is in the best interest of all attendees to cancel our 2020 Colorado Youth of the Year Awards Ceremony on Monday, March 16, 2020.
Instead, we will host a Virtual Award Announcement via Facebook Live on Saturday, March 21, 2020, at 5:00 pm MST as an alternative to our previously scheduled Ceremony. You can watch the Announcement at the BGCC Facebook Page.
Thank you in advance for your understanding as we navigate this challenging situation in a way that best protects and honors all of our stakeholders.
