ABOUT THE ANNIVERSARY GALA
Since its inception in 2011, the Anniversary Gala has raised more than $600,000 to benefit the Meadowlands Area YMCA, supporting our mission to strengthen the community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
Each year the Meadowlands Area YMCA awards hundreds of scholarships to children, teens, families and seniors so everyone can have the opportunity to enjoy the Y. The Y programs are designed, and proven, to make a positive difference in each of their lives.
As a highlight of our evening, we honor four individuals and/or organizations who have made a significant impact on our community. The members of this year’s class exemplify the core values of the YMCA – respect, honesty, responsibility and caring and each has shown they "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow" when it comes to the Meadowlands area. We are honored to have the privilege of recognizing our distinguished honorees.
We couldn't be happier to have Rutherford native and CBS 2 News Anchor, Chris Wragge, as our Master of Ceremonies this year. We are incredibly thankful to have him leading our evening.

BERNADETTE P. MCPHERSON ESQ.
