In 2017, the Greater Naples YMCA is marking 50 proud and passionate years of serving our community. We’re marking this occasion with the GOLD GARDEN GALA, an exclusive evening of anniversary elegance and excitement within the gracious grounds of the Naples Botanical Garden. So slip on something snazzy and let’s go for GOLD!

Plus, honored guest Naples resident and YMCA member Michelle Konkoly, who won multiple gold medals at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

And, direct from Miami, a live and lively performance by the Rudy Baker Band!

All proceeds from the night will benefit the Greater Naples YMCA.


We’re only two months away from our Gold Garden Gala. We’re preparing for a fun evening bringing together YMCA supporters and guests who share our mission. Thanks to the help of many generous donors, we have a phenomenal collection of silent auction and raffle items.
