Boys & Girls Clubs Dedicate Ziegler Teen Center

Local philanthropists’ million-dollar gift spurs renovation

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale dedicated the newly refreshed the Ellie and Michael Ziegler Teen Center at its Vestar Branch in Desert Ridge on Oct. 22. The renovations included new paint, flooring, a wall mural, new furniture, technology and safety updates, plus the addition of a half gym to the existing Vestar facility built in 2007.

The dedication ceremony marked the culmination of the 2017-18 One in a Millino community matching challenge to fund new construction and revitalize the teen centers at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale’ Thunderbirds and Vestar Branches. The Zieglers provided $1 million in matching funds, igniting community support and donations for the teen projects in the Grayhawk and Desert Ridge communities.
