The More Than a Gem event is our yearly fundraiser for our Annual Support Campaign. 100% of the proceeds from this special evening helps children, seniors and families in Cabarrus County. The Y uses funds to help pay for memberships and programs for those who otherwise could not afford to participate. Thanks to your generous gifts, the Y is able to provide more than $300,000 in financial assistance each year. Together we are making a difference in our community!

During the event, attendees enjoy a silent auction and hors d'ouevres before dinner and then a program which spotlights several of our YMCA stories from families who have been the recipients of assistance from our Open Doors scholarship program.
