Louis Smolensky has been volunteering at the Club for a little over a year. He is a retired pediatrician who loves helping other, and is generously donating his time to help our members. Louis spends two days a week helping our elementary school members during power hour. He can be found tutoring, encouraging and helping them with their homework. He always goes above and beyond for our members to make sure that they are achieving their academic best. We are so grateful for Louis and his dedication to our Club!
Yvonne Bogdanovich joined the BGCLAH Board of Directors in 1995. Since then she has served on multiple committee, has served as the past Board Chair, and is currently the co-chairing our $9 million Comprehensive Campaign! Our Executive Director, Mike Lansing, calls Yvonne our “Fairy Godmother” due to her commitment to the Club. She is one of our most generous “investors” for well over 2 decades, and works tirelessly to identify and steward more partners and opportunities for our youth. Her long term generosity and commitment to the Club has truly impacted thousands of youth throughout the San Pedro, Wilmington, Harbor City and Harbor Gateway regions. The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Los Angeles Harbor is so thankful to have Yvonne as a long time supporter, generous investor and active Board Member!
