3rd Annual Gridiron Gala

Published Sunday, May 21, 2017


The YMCA of South Alabama invites the communities of Mobile and Baldwin Counties to join us at the Gridiron Gala Dinner. Tuesday, October 24th, 5pm at Mobile's downtown historic Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel & Spa. The feature keynote address will be given by Eli Gold. Since 1988, Eli has served as the radio play-by- play “voice” of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. He is now the longest tenured play-by- play “voice” in the Southeastern Conference.  

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 Crystal 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 a chance to visit with local and national VIPs. 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.
