Mark your calendars and plan to join the Greater Joliet Area YMCA for its seventh annual Giving Gala on Saturday, February 22, at the Bolingbrook Golf Club, 2001 Rodéo Drive. Doors will open at 6 p.m.

Festivities will include dinner, silent and live auctions, exciting raffles and live entertainment. Tickets are on sale now for $150 per person or $1,500 for a table of ten. Exciting sponsorship opportunities, ranging from $50 to $10,000, with corresponding benefits are also available.

Cash raffle tickets for this year’s Giving Gala are also on sale now. Tickets are $25, with three fantastic prizes- $1,500, $1,000 and $500. Winners will be announced on Saturday, February 22, at the Bolingbrook Golf Club. Only 400 tickets will be sold, and the winners need not be present. 

Funds raised from this year’s Giving Gala will benefit the YMCA’s scholarship fund, helping to ensure that no one is turned away from the Y due to the inability to pay. For more information on the Giving Gala, please contact the Y at (815) 729-9638.

Get your friends together and come on out! This is a beautiful event, lots of fun and most of all we are raising funds to help families in need, some of whom are facing life's most serious problems. By providing them with a scholarship, they have the opportunity to use the Y facilities even if they are financially unable to pay. The Y is not just a "health club" but rather an organization with many programs and classes devoted to improving mind, body and spirit. If you cannot attend the Gala, there are many ways to support this fine cause.
