OXNARD, Calif. - Aug. 9, 2018 - PRLog -- The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme is seeking the help of individuals and businesses to donate items for auction and sponsors for the upcoming 29th Annual Donald K. Facciano Kids Auction & Gala. The Club has chosen long-time board member Sean Leonard and his wife, Gwen, as this year's honorees. The auction and gala is the Club's largest fundraiser and directly benefits their more than 10,400 members and 17 program sites throughout Oxnard and Port Hueneme.
