What's Happening at the Y

So Much More Auction & Gala Raises $90,000


YMCA supporters came together to celebrate the YMCA of Metro North and raise funds for our Annual Fund at the So Much More Auction and Gala. The gala exemplified how the Y is so much more to the communities we serve than just a place to work out.

We are extremely grateful to our Board, our sponsors and everyone who attended the So Much More Auction and Gala or bid on an online auction item. You are the reason the YMCA can be more, do more and help more.

Thank you for supporting our cause. Together we are more.
