YMCA of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties will host a roaring 20s-themed gala on Friday, May 13 to celebrate the culmination of the "For A Better Us" Campaign which raised $30 million to support Y facility enhancements and much needed programs and services. The gala will take place from 6:30 to 10:30PM at the Doylestown branch and includes cocktails, dinner, live music and dancing.

Renowned local caterer Max Hansen will prepare dinner, dessert and hors d'oeuvres for the gala, with live music performed by the Stan Slotter Quartet and guitarist Lorenzo Branca. 

"We are very excited to be celebrating the success of the 'For A Better Us' Campaign and all it has provided our communities." said Debbie Sontupe, chief development officer for YMCA of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties. "We invite the community to join us for a fun evening of delicious food and drinks, live auctions and plenty of dancing as we thank our donors and members who gave to the campaign."

The "For A Better Us" Campaign supported much-needed renovations to the Y's Fairless Hills branch and expanded its Doylestown branch, as well as provides free programs and services for the community. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the Doylestown expansion during the gala.
