Friends of the West Cook YMCA were not deterred by the area's biggest November snowstorm in 120 years to make its annual Gala—"a celebration of spirit, mind and body"-- a smashing success.
The capacity crowd of 170 who attended the Gala at the Oak Park Country Club Saturday, November 21, raised a record $ 77,000 in scholarships so financially challenged persons will benefit from scores of the Y's health and fitness programs in the coming year.
Gala attendees raised $28,500 for special initiatives in support of the Y's pre-school, residence, wellness and health literacy, after-school, chronic disease prevention, youth basketball and swim lesson programs, led off by a generous gift of $ 10,000.
