A Night for Nick Text Size

Event takes place on October 19, 2013 at 6:30 PM until 9:30 PM
Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke, 70 Nick Cosmos Way, Holyoke, MA

Nicholas Galanes Grass was born and raised in Holyoke, Massachusetts. A graduate of Blessed Sacrament and Holyoke High School, he entered Yale University in the fall of 2001. On January 17th, 2003, Nick and three of his Yale fraternity brothers were involved in a car accident that cut their bright futures all too short.

Although A Night For Nick was created in his honor, this event is about so much more than just remembering a loved one lost. Nick was proud to be from Holyoke and, therefore, the mission is to provide opportunities to those children in our city who need our help the most so that they can one day reach their full potential regardless of economic or social circumstances.

Nick’s mother and sisters have chosen the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke because they provide support to youth by offering a safe and fun environment where they take part in homework assistance, enriching activities like the arts and technology and can be challenged academically, physically and emotionally.

We hope that you will join Nick’s family and friends on their journey to ensure that Nick’s legacy lives on through the children in our community who need our help the most!
