The YMCA of the Palm Beaches will host their annual “Back To School Bash” on Saturday, August 6 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at their Edwin W. Brown Family facility located at 2085 South Congress Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL 33406. Over 250+ backpacks filled with school supplies will be given out to students.
The free event is open to the public and will include yard games, demonstrations, preschool tours, music, food, and raffles. Attendees will also have the chance to win swim lessons and a free membership to the facility.
“The ‘Back To School Bash’ is always one of our favorite events to host,” said Sara Bailey, Membership and Marketing Director. “Not only does it give us an opportunity to meet the families in the communities we serve, but it also encourages students to become excited for the new school year ahead!”
The organization’ recently held their “Young Friends of the Y” fundraiser, raising a total of $3,000 by the night’s end and collecting double their goal of 100 backpacks for the bash. Both events fall in line with the organization’s mission to provide programs that will build strong kids, families and communities.
