Great Futures Start Here

For over 45 years, the Aztec Boys Girls Club has served the youth and families of Aztec and the surrounding area. Over 100 kids a day take part in programs meant to build strong character, healthy bodies and sharp minds.

Our Main Club facility contains a dual basketball court, outdoor playground, a game room, a technology lab, art room and a concession stand. Our Main Club serves members ages 6 years old until they reach the 6th grade.  Our Teen Center is for our Middle School and High School age members.  The Teen Center is its own site, where teens can gather for games, recreation and programs appropriate for older members who are seeking to explore their own lives and the larger community.

Our youth are members, with the responsibilities and benefits of membership in an active community organization!  Volunteerism, sportsmanship, leadership and kindness are valued.  We are building the next generation.

While our membership fees are low, these programs have costs, which we fund through grants, donations, community support and raffles.  From our little Club in our small New Mexico town, our raffles have become world famous!  What is more, the funds raised support the larger community!  A 2015 study, conducted by the University of Michigan, estimated that every $1 invested in a Boys & Girls Club returns $9.60 in earning and cost savings to the community!  This means our local Club is worth $3,000,000 annually to Aztec and the surrounding area!

We hold two different raffles every year. The first is our Harley Davidson raffle and the second in our 50 50 raffle. Our Harley Davidson raffle is motorcycle raffle that includes models such as Road King Classics, Softail Classics, Street Glide Classics and more. There is also a cash prize with that raffle. Our second raffle is a 50 50 raffle where the money collected is then split between the club and the winner. We hope that you will support us in upcoming raffles.

SAVE THE DAY Raffle!

From the kids of Aztec Boys & Girls Club
THANK YOU!

For the past two weeks we have asked for your help.  This has been a bad year for support and fundraising, with cuts coming from every direction.  Even our Harley Raffle did not do as well as we needed. We asked for your help in a special, one-off, two-week-only raffle.  We called it “Save the Day”, because that is what you would be doing for kids who depend on the programs of Aztec Boys & Girls Clubs.


You came through!  Thanks to you, more than $20,000 was raised in two-week’s time.  This money is already being put to work in activities and programs that feed kids two meals a day, work with them on summer reading skills, and take them on adventures around the region.  If you bought a ticket, you made it possible.  Thank you!

Special thanks should also go to Sam and Laurie Henry with Henry Production, Inc of Farmington, NM.  Their donation of the 2017 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200T made this fundraiser possible.  

With all that said, congratulations are in order for our winners!  Clem Aube of Colorado and Kieth Sitton of NM both won $1000 cash prizes as we ticked off the 200 and 400 ticket marks.  But the Grand Prize winner is Dave Koschney of Phoenix.  Mr. Koschney has been a long-time supporter of Aztec Boys & Girls Club and our Raffles.  He bought his tickets on the first day of the raffle and one of them, ticket number 140, just made him a winner!



Congratulations to all of our winners and THANK YOU to everyone who bought a ticket.  Your efforts support so many children, so many activities that a few words are not enough.  Please know we appreciate it and wish everyone who gave could ride away on a dream bike!  

Stay tuned for information about activities and upcoming events.  We hope you will also join us for our 50/50 Raffle in August.

Good luck in all your future endeavors.

The 2017 Harley Raffle Winners Are

First Prize

Michael Pollard
Erie, Colorado
Ticket #1404
Road Glide Special

Mr. Pollard called our Executive Director back from the Costco parking lot!  He said “You’re Kidding me” when Mike Patch told him.  He then told our Director a story about having bought tickets for 7 or 8 years now, ever since he had to give up his “good” bike after a fight with cancer.  He has been riding around on an old “beater” and is looking forward to a NICE ride again.  He even put me on speaker phone so I could give him the news a second time so his wife could hear.  However, since they were in a parking lot and a little overwhelmed by the news, he also asked for a chance to make up his mind on the bikes. Congratulations Michael!

Second Prize

David Richardson
Colfax, Washington
Ticket #707
Heritage Softail Classic

Mr. Richardson said, says "we have been doing this for years!  This is great"
Congratulations David

Third Prize

Dana Gunn
Buckeye, Arizona
Ticket #366
Fatboy

Mike Patch reached Dana at home.  Ms. Gunn realized immediately when she saw his call “where” and “why” he was calling, so when he asked how she was today, she said “I’m FANTASTIC”.  Dana was excited and anxious to tell her husband that she WON, as soon as he gets home.  She said it was ironic that she “had to move away to win.”  She is a Farmington native, born and raised here, but moved away three years ago.

Fourth Prize

Ben Davis
Hudson, Colorado
Ticket #964
Low Rider S

Ben and his brother came down on 5/31 and picked up his new ride.
Ben has been purchasing raffle tickets for years.  Thanks Ben!

 

On behalf of Aztec Boys & Girls Club – THANK YOU!


Much of the Four Corners motorcycle community came out Saturday to help the Aztec Boys & Girls Club.  The 18th Annual Harley Davidson Raffle wrapped up at the 550 Brewing Taproom & Beer Garden in downtown Aztec. Over a hundred people came for music, fun, food and suds… and to wish for their ticket to be pulled!

The Raffle, which began in January, already saw a 2017 Street Glide Special go to Early Bird Winner David Gudgel.  His ticket, number 734, was pulled as soon as we hit 1500 tickets sold.

On Saturday, Kirk James Blues Band kicked things off at noon, with good tunes throughout the afternoon, only punctuated by announcements and drawings for mini-raffles.  The mini-raffles gave the audience a $5 or $10 chance at winning actual tickets for the bikes.  

Also at Noon, ticket sales by phone and online shut down, giving us a chance to print, cut and get all the tickets to the event.

Meanwhile, at the Beer Garden in downtown Aztec, the music played, Bryan BBQ dished out grub, 550 Brewing poured suds and we sold tickets while giving away others in mini-raffles.  Finally, just after 3 PM, the tumbler began to spin.  The first name drawn- Michael Pollard!  Mike Pollard of Erie, CO would later select the Road Glide Special.  Mr. Pollard’s winning ticket was number 1404.  

Then, ticket number 707 was drawn.  Ticket Holder David Richardson of Colfax, WA would select the Heritage Classic.  He is planning a trip this weekend to get his bike!  

The third ticket drawn, number 366, belonged to Dana Gunn of Buckeye, AZ.  Dana was born and raised in Farmington, and only moved away three years ago.  Now she gets to come back and claim the beautiful 2017 Fatboy!

Finally, ticket number 964 was drawn from the barrel and Mr. Ben Davis of Hudson, CO called to notify him of his good fortune in being selected winner of the Lowrider S.  Mr. Davis wasted no time coming down to claim that bike, as he and his brother swept into town Wednesday to load it up!

Congratulations to all of our winners and THANK YOU to everyone who bought a ticket.  Your efforts support so many children, so many activities that a few words are not enough.  Please know we appreciate it and wish everyone who gave could ride away on a dream bike!  

While enough good things cannot be said about our supporters, please know this has been a difficult year for the Club, with cuts from both government agencies and private grants.  Harley Raffle ticket sales were slow to start and were never able to catch up, putting us in some strained circumstances.  

However, due to the generosity of a local business, we may be able to offer another effort shortly to offer YOU another great chance to win.  Hot on the heels of the 18th Annual Harley Raffle, we are still looking at the best way to put this kind offer and all the support you and all our friends give each year to best use.  Keep watching www.aztecbg-club.com for an announcement, SOON!

Good luck in all your future endeavor

 


 

 The Winner of the Early Bird Drawing is ...

David Gudgel
Albuquerque, NM
Ticket Number 734
2017 Street Glide Special

Mr. Gudgel said "You're kidding me, you're kidding me, you are kidding me!"
and then "Awesome, you made my day."

Congratulations to Mr. Gudgel!!!
