Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA

29.5th Annual Paul Ecke, Jr. Poinsettia Ball

December 12, 2020

Home for the Holidays!

Hosted by the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA and the Paul Ecke, Jr. Poinsettia Ball Volunteer Committee.

Home for the holidays has never been more true than this year! Although this was supposed to be our landmark 30th Annual Paul Ecke Jr. Poinsettia Ball, a pandemic isn’t going to stop us from raising important funds for those in our community who need our help now more than ever! We hope you will join us for a virtual evening of holiday cheer and merriment.

Our Silent Auction is Open!

Do your holiday shopping and support the Y at the same time! Packages range from local getaways, holiday items for the home, wine packages, beautiful poinsettias and great children's presents directly from Santa’s workshop.



In supporting the Paul Ecke, Jr. Poinsettia Ball you join a community committed to providing quality, character-building programs for all people, regardless of ability to pay.


All questions can be directed to Paula Ford, Financial Development Manager at [email protected] or 760.942.9622, ext. 12548.
