Blue Moon Boutique in Garden Grove raised $5,250 for adopting the Youth Center in Los Alamitos as their “Charity of the Month,” with a portion of all their overall sales and profits going toward the award-winning nonprofit from last month.

“It takes a whole community to support the Youth Center,” “It took hundreds of shoppers to support us in this successful fund raiser,” said Youth Center Executive Director Lina Lumme. Besides being “Charity of the Month,” Blue Moon held a Sit & Sip shopping event specifically for the Youth Center during the holidays.

With Blue Moon’s donation, the Youth Center will be purchasing new sports equipment, school supplies and more to benefiting over 250 registered children from their After School Program and their other programs.

“We are so very grateful to Blue Moon Boutique for their support of our kids,” Lumme said. “They raised the largest amount of monies than ever before for our kids.”
