Sports Award Banquet

55th Sports Award Event

A Virtual Event

Presenting Sponsor

This Event is FREE but we hope you will support our work in the community with a gift that is meaningful to you. A link to the event will be posted on our website closer to the event and all Donors will receive an email link to the event.

Our Annual Sports Award Event will look a little different this year as we plan to hold it virtually for our high school student-athletes. Our adult community leader awardees have been deferred to 2021 when we hope to be able to honor them together with you – in person. Please join us in honoring the Class of 2020 High School Student Athletes.

Honoring Bergen county’s most outstanding high school student athletes.

Strengthening our community - Our Annual Sports Award Banquet is our largest and longest running fundraising event at the Greater Bergen County, a Y Branch of the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges. This year's event is more consequential than any other as our Y and the communities we serve have been devastated due to COVID-19. Even when our Y's closed due to the pandemic, we continued to serve our communities by providing child care for essential workers, academic support programs for our youth, food and basic needs to families, and connections for isolated seniors - all while the Y faced its own financial challenges.
We continue to provide these critical services and more, and the Sports Award Event will enable us to help so many more people who rely on the Y.
