Kim Wilson was born in Detroit, Michigan but grew up in Goleta, California.  It was in Goleta where Kim Wilson was introduced to the Goleta Boys & Girls Club and became a  Club member.  To this day Wilson recalls how the Club was a positive influence on him and shaped him to be the person he is today.

Wilson is a renowned American blues singer and harmonica player.  Best known as the lead vocalist and frontman for Fabulous Thunderbirds with his hit songs of the 1980s, “Tuff Enuff” and “Wrap It Up.”  Wilson continues to perform up to 300 concert dates per year at blues music festivals and clubs all over the world.

Great Futures really do start here at the Boys & Girls Club and Wilson is a true testament to that.

The Rally portion begins early Saturday morning, where two teams take off from a secret location, disclosed only to drivers a short time before. The course consists of a 100-mile stretch of central coast highways and back country roads where drivers stop at various “checkpoints” to complete a series of challenges. The event culminates with a themed gala with over 300 guests.  This year’s theme is California Dreaming.
