The Newnan Boys & Girls Club will host their annual Oscar Night fundraising event next Saturday, Feb. 25 at Hangar 45 at the Coweta County Airport.

The event is always held the Saturday before The Academy Awards, or "Oscars.”

The event will feature a silent auction and a speech from Sergio Wallace, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta (BGCMA) 2016 Youth of the Year winner for the Newnan/Coweta Boys & Girls Club.

The Youth of the Year award is BGCMA’s highest honor, recognizing teens from clubs in the metro Atlanta area who are working hard, investing in themselves and demonstrating leadership in their schools, clubs and communities. Wallace has been a member at the local club for the past 13 years.

“This event is to raise money for the Newnan Boys & Girls Club to help with day-to-day operations and programming,” said BGC Executive Director Lauren Odom in a previous Newnan Times-Herald Interview.

The event will be held from 6:00-10:00 p.m.
