The Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield will honor former State Representative Frank Hynes and his wife Heather at their annual Gala and Auction which will be held on March 7, 2009 at the Indian Pond Country Club in Kingston.

Frank Hynes served as State Representative for the 4th Plymouth District serving the towns of Marshfield and Scituate for 26 years and 13 terms. He served on the House Committee on Ways and Means and the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing. Mr. Hynes is a former member of the Plymouth County Advisory Board and the Marshfield Advisory Board and served on the Board of Selectmen from 1980 to1983. Many folks are familiar with his weekly cable access program "Open House with Representative Hynes" that aired in Marshfield and Scituate. Both the Massachusetts Nurses Association as well as the Massachusetts Municipal Association have honored him as "Legislator of the Year".

Mr. and Mrs. Hynes will be honored by the Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield for their support of and dedication to the Boys and Girls Club and families in the area.

Approximately 350 people are expected to attend this year’s dazzling Gala and Auction which celebrates the fifth anniversary of the Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield and also serves as a major fundraiser. At last year’s Evening Under the Stars Gala and Auction, more than $40,000 was raised in support of programs for more than 4,000 youths in the area.

The evening’s events include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, entertainment, a silent auction and a live auction.

"We can’t say enough about Frank Hynes’ work on Capitol Hill and what he has done for the Boys and Girls Club through his leadership on the Ways and Means Committee. We’re privileged to have Frank and Heather as part of our Board of Directors and are pleased to be able honor them at our Gala in March," noted Greg Jackson, Executive Director of Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield.
