Boys and Girls Club: On every second Saturday each June, the Boys and Girls Club has its largest fund-raising event of the season. They generate funds that cover over 70% of the clubs’ annual operating costs. Six Flags plays a major role in this night, spearheading the auction items and contributing IT systems and volunteers. In the 10-plus years Six Flags has been actively involved in the auction, the Park has helped raise over $7 million for the Club.
Boys and Girls Club Festival of Trees: Festival of Trees is a community-wide holiday event in support of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley. Each year, Six Flags participate by decorating a 12-foot Christmas tree for auction. Each tree is judged and auctioned off to the highest bidder. Six Flags Magic Mountain won the Grand Sweepstakes prize for best tree three years in a row! All proceeds go to the Boys and Girls Club.
