Special Events


New York City’s YMCA and the Colgate-Palmolive Company celebrated the Second Annual Hispanic Achievers reception at Carnegie Hall! Through generosity, we raised more than $180,000 in support of essential Y mentoring and college access programs for Hispanic teens in under-served communities.

Congratulations to Outstanding Leadership Award recipients and Corporate Achievers, who are all well deserving of recognition and serve as excellent role models to the Y’s young people.

This reception continues to serve as an important platform for identifying, inspiring and developing our city’s next generation of Hispanic business and civic leaders. As such, Y Rowe Scholars Pacielly Morelo and Linda Taveras, both from the Flushing Y, were awarded scholarships for college.
