Going for the Gold

GOING FOR THE GOLD is the YMCA Foundation of Sarasota's annual fundraising dinner and auction.
Established in 1991, this event has grown to become one of the largest, if not the largest, one-night fundraising event in Sarasota. A sold-out crowd of almost 500 enjoys a sumptuous dinner, huge live and silent auctions, entertainment and dancing.



HOLD ON TO YOUR HATS! The YMCA Foundation’s 24th Annual GOING FOR THE GOLD event is taking over the Kentucky Derby! Join us at our new, earlier time to make sure you have a comfortable seat and cocktail in hand as you view the 141st Run for the Roses, live, in company with the best Sarasota has to offer. Come prepared for a Southern spree of unbridled action, entertainment, and generosity for the benefit of our Y kids, families, and community.
