Sneaker Ball 2023

It’s no joke… Sneaker Ball is BACK! The Keene Family YMCA’s annual fundraising gala returns on Saturday, April 1, 2023.

A Knight of Medieval Foolery

Join us for the return of this highly anticipated event! Guests will enjoy fine food, good friends, music, dancing, and best of all, an opportunity to strengthen community by helping to ensure that everyone has access to the YMCA’s potentially life-changing programs and services.

This year’s theme: “A Knight of Medieval Foolery”

Medieval regalia encouraged. Sneakers required. 

The evening will include both a live and silent auction, filled with exciting things and experiences, all made possible through the generosity of our many donors and sponsors.

And don’t forget the sneaker contest! Wear your best for a chance to win some incredible prizes, courtesy of Ted’s Shoe & Sport.

Proceeds from this event will support the Keene Family YMCA’s Membership for All program, providing financial assistance to those who need it for membership, childcare or program participation.

Photos from Sneaker Balls past

The Sneaker Ball gala was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021 we were able to bring the event back in a different form with the Recess Edition which transformed this important fundraiser into an outdoor movie night.

Though the 2021 event was a success, we couldn’t be more excited to bring back the Sneaker Ball event as it was originally intended – a black-tie gala in the YMCA gymnasium where supporters of the Y can come together to celebrate and amplify the community impact of one of the leading nonprofits in the Monadnock region.

Below are some of the many memorable moments from Sneaker Ball 2019, captured by Steve Holmes Photography. We look forward to recapturing the spirit of Sneaker Ball in 2023!
