100 years of improving lives

The YMCA’s Celebrate A Century event on Tuesday, October 23rd at the Fairmont Copley Hotel was a great success. The evening brought together over 300 of Greater Boston’s foremost business and civic leaders in support of the YMCA mission to strengthen the foundation of community. The evening raised over $640,000 to support the Y’s work with children and families in 2013. 

The Y was honored to have Celtics Coach Doc Rivers share his personal Y story and the tremendous impact the Y has had on his life and that of his own children.
