Scotts Valley – Bringing in the new year is always a fun event, but the Scotts Valley Community rallied to make it even more enjoyable by participating in a fundraiser this New Years Eve at Bruno’s BBQ while raising thousands of dollars for the Boys and Girls Club of the Valleys, a project headed by Joe and Linda Aliberti that will bring a much needed and highly anticipated Boys and Girls Club to the area.

The event raised thousands of dollars and one lucky individual, Carolyn Auman, won a BMW automobile in a raffle contest that was graciously donated by Joe and Linda Aliberti.

“Caroyln was one of the first people to jump in and buy a raffle ticket”, said Linda. “It was nice to see her win the raffle.”

Raffle tickets were sold for $100 each, with the drawing taking place just before midnight at the event.

The Boys and Girls Club has been gaining a lot of public support and positive momentum. In addition to donating the BMW, the Aliberti’s also purchased and donated the property on the corner of El Pueblo and Scotts Valley Drive in Scotts Valley that will be the location for the organization. The property itself is estimated to be worth approximately $1,000,000.

Although the Boys and Girls Club will be in Scotts Valley, it is really geared towards the entire San Lorenzo Valley community.  The planned location is strategically located close to highway 17 between the Mt Hermon and Granite Creek exit, making it a simple commute for those living in the SLV area who stop by on their way to or from work while having their kids participate in the many activities and programs that the Boys and Girls Club will offer.
