The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka will be holding our fifth annual fundraising Gala at the Barrie Country Club (635 St Vincent St, Barrie) on October 25th, 2019, 6:30 PM.

The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka is planning our fifth annual fundraising gala, a smart casual affair featuring local artists, dancing, and live and silent auctions. Funds raised at the Spotlight Gala allow us to continue to support families and youth in our communities and invest in the future. The theme of this year’s gala is “100 Reasons Y” where we will be launching the capital campaign to build a new YMCA in Barrie. This new facility will be designed as a “hub” that will house traditional YMCA programs as well as programs delivered in partnership with various community organizations such as Youth Haven and the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre, all working together to build a healthy community.

They are active community and outdoor enthusiasts who can be found supporting a variety of charitable, political and community development initiatives. Both Alex and Emily’s Y stories began as staff members in their teens, and they both continue to be passionate volunteers for the YMCA today.
