At the Monmouth-Independence Family YMCA, STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY is our cause. We make a difference by focusing on three key areas: Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. By investing in our kids, our health and our neighbors, the Family YMCA of Marion and Polk Counties ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to thrive.
We are very excited about the event and the theme this year! The 18th Annual Monmouth-Independence Family YMCA Christmas Party & Auction will begin at 5:30 PM on December 8, 2017 at the historic Green Villa Barn in Independence. We will have live music, dinner, games, and a silent and live auction!
We are pleased to inform you that last year’s Christmas fundraising netted over $21,000! We were delighted to see such support, and the money, which was used to fund our youth scholarships, made a tremendous difference. We provided programming for over a thousand people last year, many of whom benefited from these funds. More than ever, our community is facing challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, staff, and generous donors like you to make a difference.BUY TICKETS
