Thank You for Joining Us!
We had a great day of golf and goodwill to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley’s Tri-City West/Thornwood Branch. Avondale Mayor Kenn Weise, community leaders, elected officials and this year, NASCAR race-enthusiasts, met on the beautiful greens of Wigwam Golf Resort to network, celebrate a NASCAR championship week and support a great cause for the youth in the West Valley.

BGCAZ’s Economic Impact
How do you measure the economic impact of an investment in a child’s life and well-being? We have story after story from kids, young adults, and parents who tell us how BGCAZ changed their lives for the good…
And, thanks to the Seidman Research Institute, W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, we have numbers to quantify the economic impact we have in the Phoenix Metro area.
The Seidman Institute conducted an Economic Impact Study in 2016 that monetized the benefits of BGCAZ to the local community.
Total estimated value of all socio-economic benefits: $204.9 million.
Club member households continued to work, thanks to the provision of safe, affordable out-of-school-time care at BGCAZ, benefitting the Arizona economy by $126 million in one year.
Other benefits include:
- Improved rates of high school graduation and the lifetime earnings of Club members.
- A decline in juvenile criminal activity.
- Reduced levels of teenage pregnancy and motherhood.
- Reduced levels of underage drinking and the use of marijuana and tobacco.
- Enhanced opportunity for parents to continue working.
- Impact of BGCAZ operations and volunteers.
