The YWCA is ON A MISSION with the Spirit of American Women Gala

On Saturday, November 9, 2019, we will be hosting our annual Spirit of American Women Gala from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Embassy Suites by Hilton @ Destiny USA.

The Spirit of American Women Gala is a celebration of those ON A MISSION and the women, girls, and families served by the mission of the YWCA of Syracuse & Onondaga County. Programs like Girls Inc. at the YWCA, the Women’s Residence Program, and our After-School Programs are just a few of the many initiatives the YWCA utilizes to empower and advocate for change.

The work of the YWCA is the work of an entire community and we could not do it without your support. This event is a key fundraiser for the YWCA, celebrating the power of individual philanthropy. Each ticket sold benefits our mission and those we serve. We invite you to join us and hear the stories of women and girls that have been empowered and discovered their empowerment to change their lives through support and programming at the YWCA. They are testaments of the tangible impacts your generous gifts have made on their lives and our community.

Not to be missed, celebrated CEO of YWCA USA, Alejandra Y Castillo, will be our honored Keynote Speaker for the event. Jennifer Sanders, Morning News Anchor at WSYR-TV News Channel 9, will serve as our Master of Ceremonies. In honoring women and young girls ON A MISSION, we will be presenting the Spirit of American Women award to those selected for their work dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

No event would be complete without delicious food, dancing, cash bar, great conversations, and an abundance of fun. Doors open and registration begins at 6:30 p.m. We can’t wait to see you there!
