“Dare to Dream” is the theme at this year’s Boys & Girls Clubs’ annual Sweetheart Gala & Auction.

This year’s “sweethearts,” to be honored at the event on Saturday, Feb. 10, are Marchelle Carleton and Larry Krieger. The Dare to Dream theme will transform the Maxwell Clubhouse into a black-tie gala with an abstract aura of colors and light that, according to event organizers, will “reflect, dazzle and amaze.”

The event begins at 5 p.m. with a cocktail reception, hors d’oeuvres, full bar, wines, dinner and silent and live auctions. Proceeds support programming for kids and teens in Sonoma Valley. Tickets are $250 through Jan. 1; $300 after.
