On April 29, 2017,  YS parents, alumni, teachers, administrators and supporters gathered at Heritage Hills to celebrate the innovative and creative learning opportunities funded by YSEF for the 2016-17 school year. Below is a video by Jason Plotkin highlighting some of those recipients.

Through sponsorships, ticket sales, the silent auction and general contributions, over $32,000 was raised by the community!

Proceeds from this event benefit York Suburban students through YSEF classroom grants and programs like the Impact Closets located in each YS building. Due to the generous support of our YS community, this year YSEF awarded ten grants totaling $43,998.34, which was announced at the celebration.
