For four weeks, beginning tomorrow, Cumberland Farms will donate 20 cents from every brewed tea, and coffee purchased at the 30 Sparks Avenue location directly to the NBGC. Cumberland Farms aims to raise at least $1,000. Funds raised will provide new foosball and bumper pool tables for our game room!
To celebrate the partnership, Cumberland Farms Nantucket store employees and Club members will take part in a fun and friendly foosball and bumper pool tabletop tournament games beginning at 3:00, at the Sparks Avenue Cumberland Farms.

Yoga Fest and NBGC Partner Up


This year we are so fortunate to have been chosen by the Nantucket Yoga Festival as their charitable partner for 2013! A portion of the proceeds from every full festival pass sold will be donated to the Club.


The festival is a community oriented celebration that brings together the very best world class yoga instructors, wellness experts and healthy living guides in a celebration of the spirit of the island.


The festival will kick off on July 12 at the Westmoor Club . Workshops and classes will be held at Bartlett's Ocean View Farm on Saturday and Sunday July 13 and 14 from 8:00am-5:30pm. The Vendor Area will be open from 8am-6pm on Friday and Saturday.


As a festival partner they are also offering all Club supporters a special discount code to purchase passes. Use the code BG2013 and you will save $50 off a full festival pass!

Club members have been having a great time being busy in the art room decorating shopping bags! Benji's Boutique brought in art supplies and hundreds of bags for Club members to decorate. Benji plans to take the bags back down to her shop at 27 Easy Street. After making a purchase, customers will have a chance to buy a custom made bag for $2. All proceeds will go directly to the Boys & Girls Club!


Benji has also decided that any parent of a Club member who participated in the decorating of the shopping bags will receive a discount on their purchase!

Thank you Benji!

"What are some of your plans for this summer?"


I'm going to a summer camp called the Community School and I think I'll have fun. But I might go to Pennsylvania. I am so happy I can't wait.
