With less than two months to go, the YMCA of South Florida invites you to join us on the Rooftop at our 2019 Beach Ball Gala on Saturday, September 21, at the InterContinental Miami. The Gala supports the YMCA water safety and drowning prevention initiatives that help make kids safer in and around water.
You do not want to miss this high-energy evening with live music from Heatwave, our quality Wine Wall with 100 delicious wines from a variety of regions, exciting Live Auction with trips, cruises, beach memberships and Masters Tournament tickets, PLUS some exciting nuances you’ll want to see and experience!
As a busy, kid-filled summer of learning, field trips, swimming, play and discovery winds down, the Y is gearing up for the beginning of a new school year and more opportunities to provide healthy living options to kids and families. Back-to-school time means more structured routines, youth sports and fun holiday traditions. Parents are in search of safe and nurturing after school care for their children. Kids are looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new teachers. And the Y staff is reminded of why we’re here – to bring people together and strengthen our community.
This summer we impacted tens of thousands of kids and families in our summer programs and activities like camp, swim lessons, youth sports and back-to-school giveaways. It was an amazing summer and we plan to touch many more lives in meaningful ways this fall season!
