Join us for the annual Centennial Awards; a fun, after-work cocktail reception which is the Princeton Family YMCA's annual major fundraising event.   Each year, local businesses, corporations and individuals are invited to support event and the YMCA mission in the Princeton region.

Created in honor of the YMCA of Princeton's 100th year milestone celebrated in 2008, the Centennial Award honors four to five distinguished individuals in a profession or field of achievement.  A unique feature of the event is that the program is conducted entirely by young people, ages 10 - 18, who are regular participants in YMCA programs.  They serve as the evening's moderators and present the awards. Before the event, each honoree is interviewed by his or her young presenter, and shares his or her personal story.

Heavy hors d'oeuvres and cocktails provided by Mediterra.
