Six Flags Friends is a series of programs throughout the Six Flags family of parks that make a difference in communities by encouraging local involvement, supporting the mission of various non-profit organizations and bringing the thrill of Six Flags to children and families across North America.
Six Flags Friends is a proud supporter of hundreds of organizations throughout our Six Flags communities. Through our national partnerships, we successfully utilize our geographic span to make a difference as a unified family of parks. Through our donation program we are able to contribute to many local organizations. Six Flags Magic Mountain is also pleased to support the work of California organizations that make an impact in our surrounding neighborhoods. It is the work of the organizations below that truly make our cities a better place to live, work and enjoy.
Six Flags Friends is dedicated to furthering the mission of the following organizations.
Boys and Girls Club
The Boys and Girls Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. Six Flags Friends is happy to open our gates to the children of the Boys and Girls Club and provide a safe and friendly environment for them to share with each other.
Six Flags Magic Mountain is an active participant in the many activities that surround the local area Boys and Girls Club and is proud to be an active supporter of the children within our local communities. Through spearheading fundraising events, staging activities and enticing our guests to lend a helping hand, Six Flags Friends is committed to supporting the mission of the Boys and Girls Club.
On the second Saturday each June, the Boys and Girls Club has its largest fund-raising event of the season, generating funds that cover over 70% of the clubs' annual operating costs. The park plays a major role in this night, spearheading the auction items and contributing volunteers. In the 15-plus years the Park has been actively involved in the auction, the Park has helped raise over $8 million for the Club.
Boys and Girls Club — Festival of Trees
Festival of Trees is an exciting community-wide holiday event in support of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley. Each year, Magic Mountain participates by decorating a 12-foot Christmas tree for auction. Each tree is judged and auctioned off to the highest bidder. Six Flags Magic Mountain won the Grand Sweepstakes prize for best tree nine years in a row! All proceeds go to the Boys and Girls Club.
L.A. Regional Food Bank
For 43 years, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has worked to mobilize resources in the community to alleviate hunger and has distributed more than 1 billion pounds of food since its inception. Six Flags is proud to help in their mission to ensure that no one goes hungry in Los Angeles County by hosting an annual food drive in November when Six Flags Magic Mountain offers free admission to anyone who donates a FULL grocery bag of non-perishable food items (date subject to change without notice). Over the past 13 years, the Bag-A-Ticket Food Drive has collected and donated nearly 150,000 pounds of food to the Food Bank.
