October 12, 2019

The Greater Joliet Area YMCA will be hosting a new black-tie fundraising event in fall 2019. The BE THE GOOD Gala will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019, at the Bolingbrook Golf Club.

This elegant evening will celebrate charitable giving at the YMCA by showcasing the Y’s impact in our community and the generous donors who make the mission come to life each and every day. Funds raised from this event will benefit the Y’s scholarship assistance program, which helps to ensure that no one is turned away from the YMCA due to the inability to pay.

We look forward to sharing more information about this exciting event in the coming months. To learn more about the BE THE GOOD Gala, please contact Annual Giving Manager Brittney Halliday at (815) 729-9638, ext. 325 or via email at [email protected].
