YMCA 17th Annual Gala

YMCA Reston Holds Its 17th Annual Gala

“When community works together,
dreams for those in need come true.”

YMCA Fairfax County Reston is hosting their 17th Annual Y Gala on Nov. 12, 2016, with the theme “Make Dreams Come True.” Through events such as the gala, the YMCA is furthering its goal to make the Y accessible and available to the entire community by raising much-needed funding.

Through opportunities in wellness, aquatics, youth sports, summer camps, child care and more, the Y engages more 250,000 individuals and families.

The gala is also a way of honoring a local high school senior who exemplifies the YMCA’s core values—caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The awardee of the Triangle Award will receive a $1,000 scholarship, which will be presented at the gala.

Guests attending the black-tie affair will enjoy an elegant evening of music and dancing, food and drink, and a silent auction.

Thanks to the help of donors last year, the YMCA of Fairfax County Reston was able to provide over $500,000 in financial assistance to 12,400 economically-disadvantaged families. These scholarships provided opportunities for families and individuals to use the facilities, send a child to camp, or have a preschooler enrolled in one of the branch’s school programs. Proceeds from the gala will ensure these basic needs are not just a dream for local families, but become a reality through the Y’s Caring for Community Campaign.

YMCA Fairfax County Reston counts on the support of other organizations and agencies, such as Northrop Grumman, Transaction Network Services, Griffin-Owens Insurance Specialists, and Flynn Realty Associates.

The Gala will be held at the YMCA’s facility, located at 12196 Sunset Hills Rd, Reston, VA 20190. For more information, please visit: www.ymcadc.org.
