YMCA of Greater Cleveland “160th Anniversary Gala”

The YMCA of Greater Cleveland celebrated its 160-year legacy with an announcement about an exciting future.

The more than 400 guests in attendance at a black-tie gala at the Westin Cleveland Downtown were treated to a glimpse of a new downtown YMCA. Proceeds from the party will go directly toward its construction in the Galleria at Erieview. Funds raised at the gala exceeded $100,000. Because of a generous gift from the Parker Hannifin Foundation, the downtown YMCA will be officially known as the Parker Hannifin Downtown Y.

Glenn Haley, president of the Cleveland YMCA, noted that an expanding downtown residential population makes this an exciting time to be a part of the YMCA of Greater Cleveland. With a presence in the core of the community, the Y will play an integral role in the reemergence of downtown Cleveland, Haley said. Board members David Gunning II and John Slagter served as event co-chairmen. The evening’s honoree was YMCA board member Daniel Serbin, executive vice president of corporate human resources at Parker Hannifin Corporation.

The YMCA offers programs that promote healthy living, youth development and social responsibility. STORY BY CYNTHIA SCHUSTER EAKIN/PHOTOGRAPHS BY ERIC EAKIN
