At the Y, we make accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities. Our events create opportunities for people in our communities to come together in a fun environment to participate in support of our cause! All proceeds from Y events go to support the annual campaign. These funds help us to provide program support and financial assistance to those in need so that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive through the Y.
