YMCA New Year Gala to help fund scholarships

Posted: January 10, 2018 - 1:21am

On Saturday, Jan. 27, from 6-10 p.m. the Wilson Family YMCA will host its second annual New Year Gala.

The gala will be in the Wilson YMCA Youth Gym at 3570 Wheeler Road. The event is open to children 2-12 years old. The cost is $10 for YMCA members and $15 for nonmembers.

All proceeds from the event benefit the YMCA of Greater Augusta's annual campaign, which awards around $2 million in scholarships to families and children in need. This event is in place of Wilson Family YMCA's monthly Parents' Night Out program.

This program allows parents to drop off their children with our child watch staff while they enjoy an evening out or run errands.

Children, and parents, if they wish to stay, are invited to enjoy the New Year at our gala. The attire is formal.

There will be activities such as arts and crafts, music and a dance party, a photo booth, party foods, door prizes and the crowning of a New Year Gala King and Queen.

Register today at any one of our Family YMCAs. For a list of all locations, please visit www.thefamilyy.org.

Call Shermayne Reynolds, program director of the Wilson Family YMCA, at (706) 922-9669 or email sreynolds@thefamilyy.org today for additional information.
