YMCA Women of Excellence

The YMCA Women of Excellence Gala is a unique event hosted every two years by the YMCA of Southwestern Ontario. All proceeds from this event support the YMCA Strong Kids Program, ensuring everyone has access to YMCA programs and services regardless of their ability to pay.
