Anderson-Munger YMCA Summer Soiree to Honor Civic Leaders

The Anderson Munger Family YMCA will be celebrating its 9th year anniversary at the YMCA’s rooftop underneath the stars on Friday, August 18th at 6:30 pm with catering provided by Homeboy Industries. For their first fundraising dinner, the Y will honor local civic leaders Jane Gilman, Co-Founder and now retired publisher of the Larchmont Chronicle, Scot Clifford, former Hollywood YMCA & Anderson Munger Family YMCA Board Member, and Michael Pak, founder of the Koreatown Run Club.

“We are celebrating people who have made an impact in the community while raising funds to support the Y’s program such as weekly free community vegetable and fruit distribution, water safety classes for kids, resident camp to Big Bear, and Youth & Government program for high school teens to name a few,” Rae Jin, Anderson Munger Family YMCA Executive Director told the Buzz. LA County Supervisor Holly Mitchell will also be on hand to accept the Y’s Social Impact Award.
