The 2021 YMCA Gala, generously presented by Midland States Bank, will be held on Saturday, October 30, at the Bolingbrook Golf Club. Tickets for this must-attend event are now on sale!
Since its inception, the Y’s signature fundraising event has raised more than $1 million to benefit families within our community. Join us as we celebrate charitable giving at the YMCA by showcasing the Y’s impact in our community and the generous donors who help to make our mission come to life each and every day. This elegant evening will include:
- A cocktail hour, dinner, and open bar
- Silent and Live auctions
- Raise the Paddle giving opportunities
- Wine Pull and Heads or Tails raffles
- Live entertainment and dancing
Funds raised from this year’s event will benefit the YMCA Mission Strong Fund, helping to ensure that no one is turned away from the Y due to the inability to pay.
At this year’s YMCA Gala, Judy Avery will be presented with the inaugural C.W. and J.L. Avery Philanthropic Award in recognition of her family’s generous and inspiring charitable support of the Greater Joliet Area YMCA.
