Brrr, it’s cold. If you have been with us in the past, you know this is a fantastically warm party for the coldest month! If you are new to the Y programs, you’ll find it’s a terrific community of truly caring people. Please join us for the annual LiterarY Dinner in support of the YMCA Arts Branch and the Downtown Writers Center. The Y Arts Branch offers extraordinary programs that enrich our town.
The evening includes dinner, wine, entertainment and fabulous company.
For more than a decade, members of the cultural community all over Syracuse host dinners in their homes to raise money for the Y Arts Branch and its programs. All the hospitality is donated and poets and writers and musicians donate their services too.
A tax-deductible donation of $50 per person is requested (please RSVP and bring cash or a check with you on that evening made out to YMCA Syracuse). Every dollar raised goes to the Y arts programs that enrich our town and bring arts to children of our community.
So, for the cost of a dinner out, you get dinner out AND entertainment AND a whole lot more fun AND do some tax-deductible good….We hope you can join us!
