JoAnn Baker                   Dear Friends of the Boys & Girls Club of Whittier,
Jeff Brown
Joe Corey                     It has been my pleasure to serve on the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Club
Ray Cornman                   of Whittier for more than 11 years now. While the physical accomplishments, such as
Aaron Ellis                   the addition of two school sites, the opening of our free-standing Teen Center, and the
Cheryl Estep
Shannon Gimbel                renovation of our gym, are easy to see from the outside looking in, it is the personal
Donald Heimark                accomplishments of our children that are the true testament to our success.

Vanessa Ivie                  One Club member would not speak or even acknowledge when spoken to when she
David Johnson                 came to the Club because of a special condition that she has. Week after week, our staff
Patricia Kasababian
Joyce Kaufman, Ph.D.          members worked to connect and engage with her and slowly progress was made. First it
Phillip Longoria              was a nod of the head, and then a single whispered word. Very slowly with daily attention,
Mary McNeil, Ph.D.            she began to talk and play with other kids. Now, we regularly hear her playfully shout
Jon McNeil                    across the gym to her friends. Mom says it’s because of the love and attention that she
Carl Miller                   gets at the club.

                              43 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Whittier has been keeping kids off the streets; helping

Emeritus:                                               Some people give time, some money,

Victor A. Lopez                                          some literally give their life’s blood.

her peers.
    It was here at the B.C. McCabe Foundation Teen
Center that Jewels joined our Leaders-In-Training
program and has volunteered with her fellow teens in
more than a dozen community service activities over
this past year. Whenever there is a chance to help
others, Jewels is among the first to sign up. Whether
organizing a toy drive that raises hundreds of toys for
children in need, or developing weekly activities for the
kids residing at the Salvation Army’s Transitional Living
Center, Jewels is always giving of herself for others

2010 Gala Auction
    On Saturday, October 23, 2010, the Boys & Girls Club
of Whittier hosted its 36th Annual Gala Auction where the
second annual Lee Owens Award was presented to one of
our community’s most benevolent and extraordinary couples,
Karen and Jim Shepard.
    The Lee Owens Award has been created to recognize a
recipient from within the Boys & Girls Club of Whittier’s service
area who exemplifies Lee Owens’ own Spirit of Giving. For
more than 30 years, Lee was an avid cheerleader for the Club’s
growth and development and a grand supporter who always
stepped up when there was a need. But most of all he was a
compassionate man who wanted to see our youth have a safe
and fun place to call their own…a place that was founded on
respect for others, belief in talents, and the potential for all.
    Driven by compassion and their unselfish commitment to this community, Karen and Jim Shepard have spent their
lives helping those who cannot help themselves through the generosity of their time, their talents, and their philanthropy.
As an amazing social worker, Karen gave of herself everyday to help meet the needs of countless children, as has Jim
done through his leadership of the B.C. McCabe and BCM Foundations. The Shepard’s have led by example and their
passion to improve the lives of our children, especially those who find their second home at the Boys & Girls Club of
Whittier, has made them the perfect recipients for the Lee Owens Award.
Thanks to our donors!
We extend our heartfelt thanks to the following organizations and individuals
who have so generously contributed to the Boys & Girls Club of Whittier this
program year.
