Our Y | The Basket Ball Fundraiser


Greetings 2020 Basket Ball Supporters,

We hope this message finds you and your families well and your businesses and lives moving back towards a more normal operation. We know these are challenging times, and we’re so fortunate to share with you a community of care and support. We want to thank you for your continued support of your YMCA, ensuring we can continue to serve the youth, seniors and families of Bismarck/Mandan, in overall health and wellness.

Given the unique circumstances we are all facing and with regard to the health and safety of everyone we work with, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s Basket Ball Fundraiser. We feel it is in the best interest of all involved to preserve our energy and resources until all of our participants, sponsors, donors, vendors and volunteers, will be able to enjoy coming together in comfort as we emerge stronger from this trying time. 

We are disappointed that we won’t be able to gather with you and generate some great support for our “Y For All” community programs. We very much look forward to a happier, healthier time, when we all have cause to celebrate.

We are pleased to announce our next Basket Ball Fundraiser scheduled for Friday, March 19, 2021, which we are certain will be bigger and better than ever. We hope you will join us once again for our fabulous and fun “Sporty Soiree,” which helps us fund our community programs, including Livestrong at the YMCA, Parkinson’s Group Exercise, Childcare & Camp Scholarships, Safety Around Water, Membership Financial Assistance and much more.

At this time, we ask you to let us know if you would be willing to let us hold over your donated auction items for next year’s event, with the same arrangement we agreed to this year. With your permission, may we please update the expiration date to reflect one year later, or can you please send us an updated voucher and we’ll destroy the original?

Regardless of your decision, we want you to know how grateful we are for your continued generosity and your support of your YMCA and the community we serve. YOU are the YMCA, and in whatever capacity, we are so honored and humbled to work with you. No matter the income from our Annual Support Campaign, our programs and services will continue in our community. We would very much appreciate your help to keep them going by working with us when we revamp, relaunch and rebuild in 2021.

Please contact Amy at amy.brown@bismarckymca.org or 701-751-9710 for more information and to let us know if we can count on your support for next year. Thank you for all you do, and we’ll see you in 2021!
