The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix’s “Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Stars” event raised more than $2.2 million last month to support the organization and the 11,000 youth it serves.

Nine-hundred fifty Valley leaders attended the event, which honored Arizona Diamondbacks CEO Derrick Hall with the Heart of a Champion Award. The awards was given by the Torch Club youth from the Swift Branch, who presented the award with 2017 Youth of the Year Leonel Cano Leon.

The event also honored the Arizona Diamondbacks for its 20 years of support.

The program also included an interview with Hall on the Diamondbacks’ philanthropic efforts, a live auction, surprise donations from the Arizona Diamondbacks and Major League Baseball, a silent auction, and dancing.

Archie Bradley and Taijuan Walker, who acted as All-Star Team Managers during the Youth of the Year program were also in attendance, presenting the 13 Youth of the Year teens with custom Diamondbacks jerseys.
