The Boys & Girls Club of the Bellport Area will host its 16th annual Beach Ball fundraiser on Saturday, June 22 from 6-11 p.m. The event will be held at the home of sponsors Marina and Fred Varney in Bellport and feature both a silent and live auction, music, food and “surprises.”

The annual event helps to raise money for various club programs, such as the Keystone program, which helps teens with leadership skills, community service and academic achievement. Funds will also go toward helping student members reach graduation, art and music programs, and after-school care. The proceeds benefit over 850 youth ages 5 to 19. 

Two of the hottest auction items up for grabs are the opportunity to see the Broadway musical “Hamilton” and the chance to go on an African safari. The event will feature entertainment and music by DJ Louie XIV. There will also be, for the first time, fireworks provided by Grucci.

Tickets are available in advance for $175 and at the door for $200. There are also sponsorships available for between $1,000 and $25,000. A shuttle service will be provided from Bellport Village.
