West Valley Boys and Girls Club Great Futures Start Here

Youth Of The Year Honored By LA Clippers

Like all kids, Ruby Antosh, 17, our Club's Youth if the Year has a goal.  For Ruby, this future doctor hopes to be part of the Los Angeles Clipper's' medical team.     

On April 2, 2016, she came one step closer.  Ruby Antosh had lunch with Los Angeles Clipper's team internist, Steven Krems, M.D., followed by a tour of the team's West Los Angeles training facility. Then, she was surprised with tickets or the Clippers vs. Wizards basketball game the following day.

On the day of the game, Ruby was able to participate in pregame activities, be a part of the High Five lineup when the team took the court, and was honored as part of the Clipper's' Tobi's Heroes program for her recognition as Youth of the Year for the Boys & Girls Club of the West Valley.  But the highlight of the day was when Ruby was able to meet her idol, Blake Griffin, and the rest of the team. Ruby said, "It was the best day of my life."  We are so happy that we could make her wish come true.  A special thank you to the L.A. Clippers for Ruby's "red carpet" treatment.
