Special Events

Each year we hold special events to engage the community in our cause and to raise money for the Y's community-strengthening programs and services. 

Our 2019-2020 Special Events:

View the individual event pages to find out more information about the events.


Each event raises money for financial assistance to specific programs, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive, regardless of ability to pay.

Adaptive Services Auctions
This series of silent auctions raises money for our Adaptive Services programs, including LIVESTRONG at the YMCA.  These programs help participants move beyond illness and injury in spirit, mind, and body, regardless of ability to pay.

L.L.Bean 4th of July 10K & Family Fun Run/Walk
The YMCA is the beneficiary of this family-friendly event, hosted by L.L.Bean.  The money from this generous donation goes towards strengthening our commitment to healthy kids & family time.

YMCA Peaks to Portland Swim to Benefit Kids
The money raised from this event does towards financial assistance for Aquatics Programs such as swim lessons & swim team.  By supporting this event, more children and teens will have a chance to learn to swim, be safe and confident in and around the water, and learn to work as part of a team.



Sponsors are a key part in making our events a success.  We offer many levels of commitment and a variety of events to sponsor, appealing to the full spectrum of families and individuals we serve.  No matter which you choose, you can be proud to help us continue the Y’s long tradition of service and help us support our promise to never turn anyone away because of an inability to pay.

If you would like to sponsor one of our events, please contact Tyler Cary at 207-874-1111 or tcary@ymcaofsouthernmaine.org.

A big thank you to all of our 2019 Sponsors!
