Story

I may be 90% retired but I have not retired from my passion, love and commitment to the YMCA's Cause and Mission!!!

Having recently retired after 30 years of service with the YMCA and served as the Community Liaison/Event Director, this event has always been my favorite event. The 1st annual Dancing for a CAUSE was in 2013. The community embraced it. It has been exciting to see the event grow and flourish. It provides the YMCA a unique opportunity to share the Y’s story and mission creatively and visually along with a personal touch. I have deep admiration and gratitude to ALL the community leaders who stepped way out of their comfort zone to light up the dance floor, share their Y story and Dance for a CAUSE. It has always been my dream to Dance for a CAUSE when I retired. So here I am . . . I have come full circle from Event Director to Cast Member. I am dancing to support 3 CAUSES/Programs that are close to my heart: YMCA Bright Life, YMCA Outreach and YMCA ForEverWell Seniors.

The annual YMCA Dancing with The Woodlands Stars event is not just a dance competition; it's a celebration of community spirit, empowerment, and positive change. For more info on sponsorships and tickets: https://ymcahouston.org/dancing-with-the-woodlands-stars

Each year, the YMCA Dancing with The Woodlands Stars raises funds to ensure the YMCA continues to strengthen our community through the programs we offer. It’s because of the support of our generous community that we are able to offer opportunities to learn, grow and thrive and provide financial assistance to those in need. Every dollar raised is an investment in our community and our future.

Every dollar makes an impact. No gift is too small. Thank you for your support. Your gift/donation will make a difference and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to experience the YMCA; to grow stronger in spirit, mind and body; and reach their fullest potential.

The Annual Be the Change Campaign ensures that everyone has equal access to the resources and tools they need to thrive. In the Greater Houston area, YMCA wellness facilities, one overnight camp and hundreds of program sites strive to empower youth, build healthier families and foster inclusive communities. These programs are driven by our mission of serving Houston as a cause-driven organization for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. By giving a donation to this campaign, you join a group of people dedicated to the success and well-being of our community. Join us in making an impact. The campaign is about more than just raising money. It is about the life-changing impact that the YMCA provides by opening doors to those in need. The stories of those who are impacted by the Y have the power to unite and inspire.
