2018 ‘Stand Up for Kids Gala Dinner & Auction’ on Track to be Great

Three Long-time Contributors to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley Join Together to Present the 2018 ‘Stand Up for Kids Gala Dinner & Auction’

Agoura Hills, CA – The 2018 ‘Stand Up for Kids Gala Dinner & Auction’ presented by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley is moving in the right direction.  Three long-time contributors to the Boys & Girls Clubs who share the same mission and who are a powerful team, are ready to make 2018 event the best yet.

Linda Catlin, Chairman of the Board for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley is working diligently alongside of Alissa Morton and Jeff Tanenbaum, all part of the Gala Committee. Catlin, whose participation in the Boys & Girls Clubs dates back to 2008 has been involved in several Gala events from previous years and now joins together with two additional strong leaders.

“We anticipate a thrilling Gala this year and we are all coming together for the kids,” stated Linda Catlin.  “Our volunteers are amazing from the committee members to the club directors and volunteers and all who contribute to this very important yearly event,” she added.

Jeff Tanenbaum, who serves on the Board of Governors and who also acts as the Gala auctioneer, has a long history with the Boys & Girls Clubs having served on the board since 2003.  Tanenbaum who started his auctioneering business 30 years ago, has seen the Gala grow over the years.  “I have a long stint with the Boys & Girls Club having chaired the second Gala and providing overall consultation for the organization,” stated Tanenbaum.  “Being a chairman of the Gala in addition to the auctioneer gave me a whole different perspective on the event which helps now to create that positive synergy for this year’s event,” he added. 

Alissa Morton is also no stranger to the Boys & Girls Clubs.  Morton who is the Gala Chairman this year, began volunteering with the Boys & Girls Clubs six years and ago and joined the board last June. 

Morton worked at Morton Capital Management for 28 years while also volunteering at the Boys & Girls Clubs.  Because of her strong commitment to the Boys & Girls Clubs, she left Morton Capital Management in order to make the clubs her main priority.  She is also active in the community through sports leagues and with her young children.  “The kids are our future and I want to play a positive role,” stated Morton.  “Working with the Boys & Girls Clubs is my way of accomplishing this,” she continued.  “And being on the board is incredibly meaningful to me for many reasons, but mostly because my father, Lon Morton, was so involved in helping kids be the best they can be and I’m ready to continue that legacy,” she added.

Besides the Boys & Girls Clubs, both Tanenbaum and Catlin have a long history of working together for the greater good on many events throughout Ventura County including Casa Pacific and Senior Concerns.  “It’s an incredible feeling to know that you are making a difference in the community and there is no greater gift than that,” stated Catlin.
