Black Tie for the Y - Gala for Muskegon Cancer Survivors - February 5, 2022

Support Partner

The Black Tie for the Y is an elegant evening celebrating the lives of those touched by cancer in Muskegon County. The Livestrong with the YMCA program is more than exercising your way to recovery; it supports individuals diagnosed with cancer and helps them reclaim their health and find hope in living again. Join us for silent and live auctions, wine raffle, 50/50, appetizers, hosted (open) bar, dinner (your choice of prime rib, salmon, or chicken) and dessert. After the main event, stay for music and dancing and a late night snack. So grab a friend, & get dressed up (black tie optional).

Dancing With The Local Stars - February 26, 2022

Diamond Sponsor

If you’re looking for good vibes and a groovy time, we have the event for you! Dancing with the Local Stars “Disco Nights” is set to take stage at the VanDyk Mortgage Convention Center in 2022. This new location means more seats will be available for our annual sold out show. Mark your calendar…you do NOT want to miss this spectacular event that has been dubbed as the hottest ticket in town! 

This year, 34 Community Stars and 11 Dance Pros will boogie down the stage for the 14th season of Dancing with the Local Stars. This event includes eleven teams competing to win the infamous mirror ball trophy, which means they win the rights to choose a food-related charity to donate their prize money. In addition to the eleven far out performances, there will be entertainment, hors d'oeuvres, and audience participation in voting with dollars for your favorite team(s)…a huge crowd pleaser!
 
Proceeds from Dancing with the Local Stars is distributed to food pantries and food related programs in Muskegon, lower Oceana, and upper Ottawa counties. We are passionately committed to raising awareness and funds to help stock the shelves of West Michigan food pantries.
