2nd Annual Gridiron Gala

Published Thursday, June 2, 2016


The YMCA of South Alabama invites the communities of Mobile and Baldwin Counties to join us at the Gridiron Gala Dinner. Tuesday, October 25th, 5pm at Mobile's downtown historic Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel & Spa. The feature keynote address will be given by Dr. Kevin Elko, "Connection - I See You As A Person" who will share his focuses on helping organizations in the areas of inspiration, motivation, leadership, goal setting, and becoming the best you can be. 

Proceeds from the evening will go directly to the YMCA of South Alabama's Annual Campaign for Children, Youth, Seniors and families to ensure everyone in Mobile and Baldwin Counties has access to vital programs and resources that support children, youth development, senior's programs, healthy living and social responsibility to strengthen our community. This campaign supports early learning, childcare, mentorship, scholarships and more. All "FOR A BETTER US." (Click here to visit our campaign page).

There will also be an exclusive VIP Reception in the Oakleigh Ballroom for only $50 per ticket. The doors will open at 4:45pm and last until 6:00pm. VIP guests will enjoy pre-dinner drinks, photo shoots and book signing opportunity with Sherman Williams' new book "Crimson Cowboy - The Rise and Fall of a Three-Time Champion." Sportscaster Eli Gold and Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage will be onsite for some lively and interactive discussions, and WNSP/92ZEW will be broadcasting live. 

There will be a silent auction with signed sports memorabilia; helmets, football jerseys, photos, golf, baseball, chef's table, dinner vouchers, services and much more. All proceeds will directly benefit the YMCA Annual Campaign for Youth, Seniors, and Families.
