Responsive. Resilient. Remixed – Broke Ball has a new look!

Given the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19, Broke Ball 2020 needs to look a little different, thus Broke Ball Remix is our opportunity to come together virtually to stand up for the kids who need us most.

Although it won’t be in person with you in June, we are celebrating 20 years of our Thomas P. Raley Teen Center and the impact the Raley and Teel Families have had for thousands of youth. Just like the Family’s initial investment that helped establish the Club in Sacramento and transformed the resources available for youth, their ongoing support helps Club members access the academic support, leadership development, and healthy lifestyles necessary for building great futures. You are an ongoing part of this community safety net too!

The Broke Ball Story

Broke Ball is the signature event of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento, named by Fred Teichert and his daughters. Broke Ball’s unique name stems from a play on words. When the Club began services in 1996, at a time when the Baroque Ball was the premier event in town, the Teichert Family and founding BGCSAC Board members sought to hold a fundraising event that was all about low event overhead, casual dress, simple food, fun, and friends. Thus, the Broke Ball was born.

Now 23 years later, Broke Ball is still 100% in the spirit of everything we do at the Club. It’s casual, fun, and showcases what the Club means to thousands of youth across the Sacramento region. With minimal event costs, Broke Ball provides a significant source of core mission support to enable the Club to provide innovative programs that are designed to help youth excel in school, become good citizens, and lead healthy, productive lives.
