Be involved and make the best of everything the Club has to offer.

Be the Change of Tomorrow

Boys & Girls Clubs, indeed a Positive Place For Kids of which our kids have benefited over the past two and a half years.

I cherish the memory of the first day entering the Main Branch (link to MB page) location. It was a perfect, divine appointment that has continually been a blessing to our family, until this present moment. The Boys & Girls Clubs has become part of our lives and through them our family is so proud and honored to be the Regional and National winners of the Family Plus Iron Chef Cook-Off.

We are so grateful to have been chosen to represent the Pacific Region and we have learned and grown so much since our first cook off on August 6, 2008, and even more since the final cook off in Atlanta, Georgia on November 19, 2008.

Returning from Atlanta, it took only hours for our phone to ring back-to-back surprisingly with congratulatory calls, not just from family and friends, but also from the media.  We had interviews with the O.C. Register, Garden Grove Journal, and Channel 3 TV.  It was an overall wonderful experience, to which we give God all the glory.

Our families love for cooking and so far from such exposure, we cooked for a lunch setting serving over 80 people, a graduation dinner for about the same number, made dinner for two, held a demonstration for an Open House, and much more.

In giving back, we have even taught cooking classes and worked with the kids of Boys & Girls Clubs of Westminster on a weekly basis, covering all ages from kinders to teens.  One of the most fulfilling ways to give back is sharing our talent.

We encourage everyone who is a part of Boys & Girls Clubs to continue to make the best of everything the Club has to offer. Take time out to be involved, whether it is to receive positive things the Club has to offer, or simply to share your skill, talent, or time.  

Kids love to see us lead by example.  Plan to get involved now and be the change of tomorrow.  Only our best is good enough! Give your all and your best always. The sky is indeed the limit.
