Special Events


In partnership with Colgate Palmolive Company, the YMCA will host the second annual Hispanic Achievers Reception on Tuesday, November 29th at Carnegie Hall from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. This event recognizes excellence in community service and corporate leadership by outstanding Hispanic individuals in New York City's businesses. 

The funds raised support essential YMCA mentoring and college access programs for Hispanic teens in under-resourced neighborhoods and schools. Additionally, the reception serves as a platform for helping to identify, inspire, prepare, and develop our City’s next generation of Hispanic business and civic leaders.

This year's honorees are: 

  • Lisa Gomez, Partner and Chief Operating Officer of L+M Development Partners 
  • Dr. Daivd Gomez, President of Hostos Community College
