  • Craft beer, wine & cocktails

A Cause-Driven Effort Decades in the Making

Over the past 10 years, our annual event has netted more than $1.5 million to directly support children, families, and seniors in central San Diego who need our help. As homelessness increases, childhood obesity grows, and our baby boomers age, the Y is determined to support our neighbors who need a helping hand. Specifically, we continue to provide more than $1 million in free/subsidized programming and services to more than 10,000 people, and this event a major part of that effort.

From free child care for working families and social/recreational programs for often-isolated seniors to literacy and robotics classes for students in underserved communities, the Y is changing lives… and your support makes that happen.
