RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Hot August Nights Foundation is contributing $100,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of the Truckee Meadows to help support a new youth facility.

Hot August Nights executive director Tony Marini says it is the single largest donation ever made by the charitable arm of the long-running classic car and music festival.

Mike Wurm of the Boys & Girls Club says it's a big shot in the arm for their daily operations as well as the club's new $14 million William N. Pennington Facility. It's scheduled to open May 20 at the site of the former YMCA across from Reno High School.

Wurm tells the Reno Gazette-Journal ( it will include four full-sized, multipurpose athletic courts, staffed classrooms, a library, kitchen, cafeteria and technology areas.
