March Madness

Saturday, March 28, 2020 –  7:00 to 11:00pm
Rye Grill and Bar, Rye NY
Our most important fundraiser of the year, March Madness, our Annual Benefit, raises funds for our Y Cares Financial Assistance Program which allows us to keep a powerful promise to the communities we serve: no one will ever be turned away from a Y program or activity because he or she can’t pay. Your sponsorship will send kids to camp, subsidize senior memberships, support cancer survivors and so much more. Attended by 200 people, March Madness is an exciting evening of food, fellowship and fun!
