Night of Champions

On Thursday, October 26th the YMCA of the Blue Water Area will be hosting the ‘Night of Champions’ fundraiser event at the newly renovated SC4 Fieldhouse. This year Detroit Pistons “Bad Boys” alumni, Rick Mahorn and James Edwards will be in attendance with Bill Laimbeer as the keynote speaker. Guests will enjoy a strolling dinner with cuisine from local businesses while participating in both silent and live auctions. A special presentation will also take place to recognize the Y’s newest Life Member Award recipients: Greg Busdicker, Julie Moak, Mark Walker, and Mel Wallbank. Tickets are $100 each or $1,000 for a table of 10. Proceeds from the event will benefit the YMCA of the Blue Water Area.
