Support the Y Afterschool Program.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.

Thank you for supporting the YMCA of Greater New York's 19th annual Arts & Letters Reception, honoring Jo Ann Ross, President and Chief Advertising Revenue Officer, CBS Corporation and Tom McGovern, President, Optimum Sports.

Because of you and the generosity of the over 400 people who supported the event, we raised over $500,000 for our Y Afterschool program, which provides free enrichment in math, reading, and the arts to nearly 10,000 students in over 70 public schools from the hours of 3pm - 6pm each day. Please take a moment to enjoy photos from this memorable event, and share yours by tagging @ymcanyc on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
