Get Involved with Special Events at the Y!
Give the Gift of Possibility
Be a part of our Recognition Dinner, the YMCA of Metro Chicago’s largest one-night fundraising event! Each year, this event brings our community together to learn about the many life-changing programs made possible by generous donors to the Y. We hope to see you there!
Attend a Summer Farewell Party!
Our Back to School Bash is free family fun! Activities like arts and crafts, movies, and relay races entertain the kids, while adults have the chance to explore the many programs offered by the Y.
Pumpkins and Candy and Costumes, Oh My!
Looking for a family-friendly Halloween celebration? The Y invites you to get spooky with us! You can expect themed arts and crafts, sweet treats, and frighteningly fun games for the whole family!
Give Your Kids a Healthy Start
At the Y, we believe that play is fundamental to a healthy life. On Healthy Kids Day, we use sports, games, healthy snacks, and more to encourage kids to get active, have a blast, and share joy with others in their community.
