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.
