SEND MY COMMENT


Event underwriter information available here

On behalf of the Jackie Robinson Family YMCA and the community it serves, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you!

We hope that you will consider supporting this year’s 20th anniversary of the Jackie Robinson Family YMCA Gala on April 16, 2016. An underwriting packet is available here highlighting the various opportunities to support, or you can register today for the event online at http://www.jackierobinson.ymca.org/yregister/gala.html.

Last year, the Annual Jackie Robinson Family YMCA Gala provided eleven college bound local high school seniors with funding toward their goal of higher education. Not only did we help our eleven deserving award recipients, we also met many of the needs of those who live in our service area; one of the most critical communities in San Diego County.

Donations and underwriting helped provide $135,907 during the 2014-2015 fiscal year in Scholarships to help children and families in our community with much needed opportunities for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility through our programs. This support of the annual Jackie Robinson Family Gala provided our community with the following opportunities:

  • $75,364 provided to 268 children in Scholarships to be able to attend day camp programs.
  • $2,920 provided to 55 children in Scholarships to be able to attend dance classes.
  • $16,867 provided to 368 youth and adults in Scholarships to be able to participate in sports programs.
  • $17,692 provided to 354 youth and adults in Scholarships to be able to participate in swim lessons.


We can’t do it alone. Together we will continue inspiring future leaders and creating brighter futures by providing programs and financial assistance for the many children and families the Jackie Robinson Family YMCA serves on a daily basis.

We look forward to speaking with you directly to discuss how you can support this very special community event.
Sincerely,


Montéle Graves
