North Suburban YMCA continues to adapt to post-pandemic needs, specifically in its fundraising efforts. Part of the Y’s evolution started last summer with new fundraising efforts called Community Strong. The new Community Strong fundraisers will again incorporate two events, The Community Strong Dinner & Casino Event, formerly known as the Ken & Alta Theil Strong Kids Fundraising Dinner, and the 2nd Annual Community Strong Golf Outing and Patio Party. The Community Strong events will fund the Y’s financial assistance scholarships, and support its operations and community programs. The Community Strong efforts is to bring ½ of the needed funds to support the scholarship and operations for the Y. Without the support of these events, the Y would not able to offer the free programs and services.
