Date:10/14/2008

Event to Highlight the Amazing Contributions of John Price, an Influential

Member of the YMCA for More Than 50 Years

PLEASANT HILL, Calif., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mt. Diablo Region YMCA will host the 28th Annual Boosters Gala on Friday, October 17, 2008 at the Diablo Country Club located in Diablo. The evening will include a celebration of the 50 years of community service the Y has provided throughout Contra Costa County. One of the many highlights of the event will be a presentation and toast celebrating John Price, a dedicated and influential member of the Y for more than 50 years. The Gala will start at 6:30 pm with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by dinner, a live auction and dancing.

The event will spotlight the special life of John Price, who has been a loyal member of the Y since 1955. As a 12 year old, John began his Y adventure, earning a scholarship to attend the YMCA summer camp at Gualala. He then worked for the Berkeley facility after graduating from the University of California in 1940. He later served as the Executive Secretary of the Mt. Diablo Region YMCA in the early 1950's. John was then elected to the Board of Directors and served from 1973-75. As Membership Chairman, John played a pivotal role in the search and implementation of new members. His commitment in helping the Mt. Diablo Region YMCA grow into the community exemplifies the continued dedication that members have shared in the past 50 years.

"The Mt. Diablo Region YMCA has dynamic and far-reaching plans for continued success over the next 50 years. We anticipate hosting many more events, such as the Boosters Charity Gala, in the future to continue to provide life-changing programs and services," said Michael F. Erwin, president and CEO of the Mt. Diablo Region YMCA.

In the last 27 years, the Y has hosted the Boosters Gala to benefit specific programs within the YMCA. All net proceeds from this year's event will be donated to the Strong Kids Campaign, which provides support and financial assistance to children, adults and families who are in need of help in the community. The YMCA's life-enriching programs include youth sports and arts programs, youth obesity prevention programs, youth and government, adventure guides, before and after school child care, preschool programs, facility memberships, and more. The organization is dedicated to enriching the lives of all people through programs that strengthen spirit, mind, and body.

The YMCA welcomes everyone in the community to participate in its many classes and programs. To ensure that no one is turned away due to the inability to pay, the Y is reaching out to the community for assistance in fundraising efforts. The public can assist by donating items of substantial value for the silent and/or live auction part of the Gala. To donate items and/or to purchase tickets to the event, please call (925) 609-9622 by no later than Thursday, October 16.
