A Night for the Community
You know the challenges in our community today: people of all ages and backgrounds are struggling to reach their full potential. More and more, children face widening learning gaps and lack of safe places to be while their parents work. Families find it difficult to spend quality time together, as playing outside has become rarer, and face time happens through a phone. Instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow.
But where society falls short, the Y — and donors like you — step in. Together, we make a difference in the lives of thousands of people and a huge impact on each individual we serve. The Ozarks Regional YMCA understands what our community needs to be its best. Working with generous people like you, our Y provides everyone the opportunity to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others and contribute to a better community for all.
Everything the Y does is in service of making us — as individuals and the greater Ozarks Regional YMCA community — better. This year’s “Night for the Y” is directed to all those who take the time to make a difference in the lives of individuals.
On Saturday, October 6, 2018, the Ozarks Regional YMCA will hold its 31st annual Night for the Y event to raise the charitable funds needed to address the issues that concern you. Every dollar raised stays local to this community and has a lasting impact on the people of our YMCA community through programs for healthy families, children falling through the cracks academically, aging adults in isolation and financial assistance to everyone who falls below the poverty line. Your attendance and commitment will build a better us by ensuring that the Y’s doors are open to all. Your philanthropic support helps thousands of youth and families live healthier and happier lives.
Yes, you know the challenges we face but just like the Y, you see the opportunity to make a difference. We are your partner, standing with you to strengthen our community. Please join us and take your first step in making a difference and building a better us. Night for the Y - an elegant evening of fun, food and entertainment to benefit the Ozarks Regional YMCA.
