Online PR News – 27-March-2019 – Oxnard, CA – The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme is seeking sponsors for its 17th Annual Great Futures for Kids Breakfast on May 8, featuring award-winning actor and comedian Steven Michael Quezada as keynote speaker. With a career in the entertainment industry spanning more than 30 years, Quezada has worked alongside some of the biggest names in show business including Joe Pesci, Helen Mirren, Danny Trejo and George Lopez. He had a recurring role in the Emmy Award winning television series Breaking Bad, which was filmed in his hometown of Albuquerque, NM, and for which he earned a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a drama series.
"This annual breakfast event serves as a community rally to mobilize local businesses and individuals to help raise awareness about the Club's wide range of educational and enriching programs that help our youth successfully navigate their path to a great future," said Erin Antrim, BGCOP chief executive officer. "It's through the generous support of our donors that BGCOP can ensure our 10,400+ members will continue to receive access to the Club, and the mentoring and activities that help these young people become caring, responsible, self-sufficient citizens in our community."
Families pay $20 per year to become members of the Club; however, no one is turned away regardless of ability to pay. The Club pays more than $500 per year in program fees for each child. Proven to be a worthwhile investment, members of BGCOP have higher graduation rates, lower teen pregnancy and lower crime rates than area youth.
For a fifth consecutive year, California Resources Corporation will be the Breakfast's presenting sponsor. Other sponsorship opportunities are available. Sponsorship benefits include corporate recognition at the breakfast, publicity on promotional materials and tickets to the event. For sponsorship opportunities, more information, or to attend the breakfast contact Mayra Rincon at (805) 815-4959 ext. 200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
