About Boys & Girls Clubs

Since 1926, Boys & Girls Clubs has been at the forefront of youth development in Arlington and Fort Worth. In October of 2018, the former Arlington and Fort Worth Clubs merged to become Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County with the mission of enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

● More than 23,000 Tarrant County youth served in 2019 by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County  
● No.1 Largest Boys & Girls Clubs organization in Texas
● 24 School-based and free-standing locations across Tarrant County with innovative programs directly offered at dozens of partner schools across the region
● 2X High school students enrolled in Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County college readiness programs are twice as likely to enroll in college as their peers who are not participants

In 2019, there were a number of notable accomplishments made by the organization:
● Prevention Programs were expanded to double the number of youth we will serve over the next five years. These programs include Positive Action, Too Good for Drugs, and Straight Talk, and are now being implemented in Arlington sites.
● BGCGTC’s Optimal Club Experience Score, a BGCA-branded term that refers to the overall experience a member receives at a Club, was 25% higher than the national average of other Boys & Girls Clubs in the country.
● For the 2019-2020 school year, after-school programming has expanded into pre-kindergarten, in partnership with four school-based Arlington ISD clubs

For thousands of families in our community, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County is a lifeline, providing youth and teens a safe place to go during critical after-school and summer hours. At the Club, they share in fun and enjoyment with other members and recognize and celebrate their achievements all in a safe, positive environment that guides them to reach their full potential.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County strives to ensure success is attainable to every single child, to bring a world of creativity, interactive learning and critical developmental skills to Tarrant County’s most vulnerable young people.

We strive to change the odds through:
● Pre-College Programs are geared to break the cycle of low educational attainment. Upward Bound and Educational Talent Search programs focus on graduation and college enrollment, providing services to low-income and potential first-generation college students.
● Intervention programs that go beyond the easy stuff. Comin’ Up Gang Intervention provides career, education and life guidance for youth involved in gangs. Open late at night in hard-to-reach communities, this program offers real solutions to difficult situations.
● Innovative science, technology, engineering, art, and math programming offer an enriching curriculum for kids who need it the most. Clubs provide world-class education, leadership and healthy lifestyle programs to our county’s most vulnerable young people, helping them build bright futures and helping low-income families afford enriching after-school and summer activities.
● Youth armed with resilience skills are equipped to avoid problems later. Prevention programs are offered to school-aged youth in a variety of settings. Carefully organized to reach communities that are plagued with alcohol and drug challenges, these services are needed to break destructive cycles.

With programs and Clubs located in the areas that need our attention the most, the Clubs strive to create brighter futures for youth in Tarrant County. Often unnoticed, these children can be left behind, but with strong advocates, they are given an opportunity to excel.

The funds from the Cinderella Ball go directly to support the programs and services offered by Boys & Girls Clubs. They go toward the future of a child and open the door of opportunity for youth who need us most.

With the help of the Cinderella candidates and other generous businesses and supporters, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County has provided a safe place for young people for more than 90 years.

About The Ball

About The Cinderella Charity Ball

The Cinderella Charity Ball is the oldest continuing social event and charitable benefit in
Arlington. The first ball was held in 1961, and the event was so successful in raising badly
needed revenues for the Arlington Boys’ Clubs that the Board of Directors voted to make
the Ball an annual project. The Ladies’ Auxiliary was formed in 1967 and assumed the
role of producing the Cinderella Charity Ball. Although the Auxiliary performs many
services for the club, the Ball is still its major annual project.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Arlington, Inc is supported partially by the United Way of
Metropolitan Tarrant County. The Cinderella Charity Ball provides additional resources
for capital improvements to facilities and major operational expenditures. Proceeds from
the Ball have allowed the Boys & Girls Clubs to provide the best in physical surroundings
and program equipment. Major investments have been made in vehicles, office equipment,
scholarships, the addition of the boxing gym at the Main Branch, the completion of the
Southeast Branch building in 1981, the addition of the basketball gym in 1996, and the
Kromer Branch in 1998. All of the money collected by the candidates for the Cinderella
Ball (after expenses) is used directly on projects which benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of

The 2016 Cinderella Ball pushed the total money over $10,000,000 raised for the Boys &
Girls Clubs of Arlington. We welcome applications from young ladies who wish to work
together to achieve this.

Thank you for your support!
