Seven teens from the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach joined 1,500 peers for a leadership Conference in Anaheim made possible partly by a $400 donation from Tony’s Treehouse.
Founded by Becky Martinez of Laguna Beach, Tony’s Treehouse has contributed nearly $4,000 over the years to help fund special club projects. Martinez heard about the Keystone Clubs’ dedication to community service and leadership and wanted to help.
