The YMCA of Western Ontario Women of Excellence Gala is a unique event hosted every two years by the YMCA in London. All proceeds from this event support the YMCA Strong Kids Program, ensuring everyone has access to YMCA programs and services regardless of their ability to pay. It is one of the many ways the YMCA of Western Ontario fulfills its goal of developing spirit, mind and body in people of all backgrounds, beliefs and abilities in our community.

Thank you to our 2015 Women of Excellence Co-Chairs, Jill Wilcox & Ruthe Anne Conyngham!

Our 2015 event was held on Thursday, May 7. Thanks to the support of our sponsors and attendees we raised in excess of over $180,000 to support our YMCA Strong Kids program. Congratulations to all of our honourees. View photos from the event.
