Club 66 was first created to commemorate the year in which the original clubhouse opened—1966. The goal was to gather 66 generous members giving $66 a month to provide ongoing support for kids to attend the Club. And now, to celebrate the Club's 55 birthday and the success of Club 66, we are happy to announce that Club 66 has been expanded to include new giving levels and great perks for all of our friends who join.

Lend Your Name recognizes the Club’s key supporters in a tangible way by allowing them to physically be a part of the clubhouses through room dedication and program endorsement opportunities. As community leaders, this is a great way to show your support for the Club and the community at large.

Sponsor one of our many special events throughout the year.
