Malibu, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2007
Friday the 30th of November marked the inauguration of The Club, a new Malibu Boys and Girls Club building, constructed this summer with a $100,000 donation from Chris and Pax Prentiss, co-founders and co-directors of Passages Addiction Cure Center in Malibu, California. The Club's special VIP ribbon-cutting ceremony was a success, with approximately two hundred people in attendance to witness the dedication of the new facility.
Attendees also enjoyed a teen fashion show, coached and hosted by Cindy Crawford, which added to the celebration of the new facility, and encouraged the collection of gift certificates from clothing stores to aid fire victims. A collection site was set up in the tent, in addition to a runway and music.
The Malibu Teen Center provides a home away from home for teens, serving as many as 400 students per day. Bursting at its seams and needing more space to accommodate capacity, its President, Danny Stern, approached Chris and Pax Prentiss, founding father and son team of Passages, a local drug rehab center, for a donation to fund the construction of a new wing for the facility.
After agreeing to support the Malibu Teen Center by donating funds for The Club, construction began. Chris Prentiss said at the opening, "The Malibu Teen Center is the heartbeat of Malibu, and we know that the time to create a happy, healthy lifestyle, free of drugs, alcohol and addictive behavior is during the teen years."
He continued, "Pax and I are honored to be able to participate in providing a place for our teens to gather in a home away from home where they will find the right morals, the right ethics, the right friends and the right way of living that will see them safely through life's trials. To see and feel the energy of those kids and their parents at the ribbon-cutting ceremony was a treat and a reward to last a lifetime."
Cindy and Chris cut the ribbon together, officially opening the new center to great applause and cheering.
