The YMCA’s Heart of the Community Luncheon will take place Tuesday, April 30. The reception begins at 11:30 a.m. followed by luncheon at noon. It will be held in the Lakeview Room at Almansor Court, 700 S. Almansor St., Alhambra 91801.
This year, the honorees will be The Alhambra Educational Foundation, Reyna Del Haro Kaiser Permanente Foundation, SCE Foundation, and the Nicole Tilley, William H. Tilley Foundation. All of them have been superheroes in their support of the Y.
The first Heart of the Community Awards Dinner was held Feb. 13, 2009. It was named by the planning committee with the goal of gathering friends and supporters of the Y to recognize those who whole-heartedly serve the community through the YMCA of West San Gabriel Valley.
In that first year, the committee also recognized the need to raise money for Camp Ta Ta Pochon in the San Bernardino Mountains that has served generations of children with an outdoor camping experience. Despite the state of the economy during that time of recession, the dinner was sold out and the generosity of the supporters was boundless.
The Heart of the Community luncheon is celebrating the 107th year of the local YMCA and will raise money to support programs like Summer Day Camp, weekly field trips, Camp Ta Ta Pochon, basketball league, swim lessons, and their increasingly popular after-school program.
Please RSVP by April 23 to the YMCA at 626-576-0226.
