Annual Meeting
Wed., Nov. 8, 2023
11:30 am

This year marks a time of new beginnings after the continued struggles from the pandemic and the continuation of what the YMCA stands for – changing lives for the better. For over 90 years, the Kenosha YMCA has been providing valuable services to our local community, and we invite you to help us celebrate.

Each year our community leaders, donors, and members come together and recognize our successes. You can help the Y continue to make a difference in the health and well-being of children and families in Kenosha County by attending the 2023 Kenosha YMCA Annual Luncheon.

Join us as we showcase local heroes, Y-Award recipients, and more on their contribution to our community.

The YMCA Awards are named in honor of Kenosha community members that founded the Y and continue to guide the organization into the future. The awards are given to those that have exemplified the Y Core Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility in our three Areas of Service: Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.

This 8th annual event is our opportunity to celebrate another year of strengthening our community and our volunteers, supporters, business members and staff. We are excited to see new and familiar faces at the luncheon, held in the beautiful University of Wisconsin-Parkside Ballroom.

Board Chair, Steve Donovan says, “Donations to the Kenosha YMCA support fighting against the things that make us all unhealthy, fearful, and lonely. While some businesses closed their doors at the beginning of the pandemic, the Kenosha YMCA opened ours wider, providing emergency child care, food, support, and hope. Join us in celebrating and help us continue to reach out to our community.” Donations support community programs for the area’s most vulnerable, including:

The Kenosha YMCA supports families and children by caring for nearly 400 kids each day in licensed before- and after-school programs and has more than 30,000 community members improving their health through membership and programming. The Y also offers scholarships to children and families that need assistance.
