  • Volunteers Needed

    The Y is looking for volunteers to help plan its ninth annual Giving Gala, which is slated for Saturday, February 27, 2016 at the Bolingbrook Golf Club. Proceeds from this annual event benefit the Y’s scholarship fund, helping to ensure that no one is turned away from the Y due to the inability to pay.

    Community volunteers are needed to help plan all aspects of the Giving Gala. Volunteers assist with logistics, sponsorship, marketing, decorations and live and silent auction item solicitation. The planning committee meets monthly.
