Respond, Rebuild, Rejoice at the Greater Naples YMCA’s ninth annual Sneaker Ball
The Greater Naples YMCA will host its ninth annual Sneaker Ball Friday, Feb. 21, 2014 at the Seacrest Country Day School located at 7100 Davis Blvd. The fun and energetic fundraiser, held from 6:30 to 11 p.m., will raise funds to help rebuild the Naples facility, which was partially destroyed by a fire on Labor Day. Continuing an annual tradition, the Sneaker Ball will feature an informal atmosphere urging guests to “Leave your tuxedo at home, put on your sneakers and join us for an exciting fundraising event.” All footwear is allowed at the event but sneakers rule the night. Tickets are $150 per person; a table of 10 can be purchased for $1,200. The evening includes a full dinner and bar provided by Artichoke & Company and Quantem Aviation and live entertainment by the Robert Williamson Band. The event is sponsored by honorary chair and premier sponsor, Lavern Gaynor.
