Sponsorship opportunities are available for the Southeast Ventura County YMCA’s 5th Annual Gala taking place Saturday, November 4 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
The Southeast Ventura County YMCA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building positive relationships, impacting lives and strengthening the community through youth development, healthy living programs and social responsibility. It serves the Conejo Valley, Simi Valley, Westlake Village, Oak Park, Agoura Hills and Moorpark.
The funds raised from the evening support YMCA programs including Find My Genius and Safety Around Water. Find My Genius is a five-week achievement gap program for low- and moderate-income students who are not reading at grade level. The program is offered at no cost to participants. Safety Around Water is designed to teach children water safety and basic swimming skills. It is also offered at no cost and is open to the public.
"Funds raised through gala sponsorships go directly to helping these and other YMCA youth programs," says Ronnie Stone, Southeast Ventura County YMCA CEO. “The positive impact on our young people is amazing.”
Last year, the gala raised over $600,000. The funds helped nearly 600 young scholars take part in the Find My Genius summer program, with 281 scholars participating in after-school Find My Genius enrichment programs. Another 720 children took part in the Y’s Safety Around Water.
The gala will feature gourmet cuisine, live entertainment and a silent auction.
