Night at the Ranch will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach

Club Alumnus Leif Hanson had the idea of the Night at the Ranch event nine years ago and the event is now one of the best in Laguna. Leif, a resident of Laguna Beach, attended what was the Laguna Beach Boys Club during his formable years as a young boy and was looking for a way to give back to the Club. He enlisted his good friend and fellow Club Alumnus Steve Blue, and together with their amazing committee, they have made this event a success.

“The number of kids who need us has grown so fast that we’re just trying to keep up. Now we need more support than ever so we can be there for all kids,” says CEO Pam Estes.
