The Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA will host its 24th Annual Paul Ecke, Jr. Poinsettia Ball on Dec. 13 from 6 to 11 p.m. in the Gary E. Biszantz Family Gymnasium. Guests will welcome in the holiday season with a formal evening of live entertainment, gourmet dining, and dancing. The evening includes silent auction items, including vacation packages, one-of- a-kind items, and more. All proceeds from the event benefit the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA’s Financial Assistance and Community Partnership programs. For over fifty years the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA has offered quality programs and YMCA membership to community members, including those that needed financial assistance. Last year nearly 2,000 children, seniors, and families received financial assistance from the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA due in large part to the Poinsettia Ball. The YMCA encourages you to attend and support their beneficial community programs. Visit for more information.
