The "Fill The Treasure Chest" evening is the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Peoria’s chance to say “thank you” to our faithful donors, volunteers, community leaders and corporations for their devoted service, guidance and dedication. Raising over $80,000 annually for all facets of the Boys & Girls Clubs experience is proof that this is not a night to be missed.

Over 300 civic, professional and elected officials attended Fill the Treasure Chest to honor local citizens for their outstanding efforts and commitment to the youth of Greater Peoria. Their generosity makes a positive difference in the lives of 1,500 plus youth of the Boys & Girls Clubs.
