With a sold-out crowd in attendance, the Greater Joliet Area YMCA hosted its ninth Giving Gala Feb. 27 at the Bolingbrook Golf Club.
Guests enjoyed an elegant evening that included dinner, live entertainment and opportunities to bid on an assortment of silent and live auction items. When the night ended, a grand total of $140,000 was raised in support of the Y’s scholarship fund.
The Greater Joliet Area YMCA has been serving families, regardless of age, income or background, from throughout Will County and its surrounding areas for more than 85 years.
Since its inception, the Giving Gala has raised more than $600,000 to benefit families within those communities, helping to ensure that that no one is turned away from the Y due to the inability to pay.
