Fundraising For Special Programs For Local Youth And Families
On Saturday, September 28th, hundreds of East County residents will shine their belt buckles and don their best pair of jeans for East County Family YMCA’s annual fundraiser called The Branding. The event, celebrating its 20th Anniversary, will be held in a western setting at the McGrath Family YMCA in Rancho San Diego.

Themed entertainment and games, live and silent auctions, and a grand prize drawing round out the night’s offerings.

Individual tickets are $175. Tables of 10 are available for $1,500 to $2,500. Event sponsors and auction items are also needed.
