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.

TODAY, someone WON!
As most of you know, just two weeks ago we gave away a Harley Davidson Road King Special to Peter Wicha of New York! Peter is making arrangements to modify his bike and get it shipped home.
Today, we rolled out the big barrel for the 1,158 tickets YOU all bought. 1,158 times people reached out to support the kids of this little community through our little Club!
We had a community carnival today, rolling out the firetruck and having a visit with Sparky the Firedog. Games were played, prizes won, fun was had!
A little after 3PM each one of the 1,158 tickets we sold began to tumble in our big barrel! We will post pictures later on our Facebook page. Then we had one little visitor to the carnival, Miles, a future Club kid, reached into the barrel and pull out a ticket. He handed it to the Aztec Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year, Devin Pauly. Devin, with a little help from Sparky the Firedog, announced the winner – Mr. Gary Jefferson of Little Rock, Arkansas! Mr. Jefferson had purchased his ticket online way back on December 14. It was lucky ticket number 328 that won the prize!
I called Mr. Jefferson, and when I reached him he told me he had been participating in our raffle for over a decade. He also shared that this was better than any day he had at the horsetrack! In his words, this was “fantastic!”
I told Mr. Jefferson he had a choice between a 2019 Street Glide Special OR a 2019 RZR XP 4 seat Turbo and Mr. Jefferson quickly responded “I’ll take the Harley!” Congratulations, Mr. Jefferson!
To everyone who bought a ticket, THANK YOU! To everyone who shared our information with friends, THANK YOU! To all those who have reached out to support the Club for years, THANK YOU!
Without YOU, there is no Club.
Thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket!!
