In 1969 a group of community leaders led by David and Betty Jo Ashe shared a dream of building a YMCA in Boca Raton.

They raised $30k to start the program and in 1970 Texaco Oil Company donated 15 acres of land in Boca Del Mar. 

In 1971 a capital campaign led by Peter Blum raised over $500k for construction and in 1972 the YMCA of Boca Raton was incorporated and our Y began.

In 2000 the YMCA of Boca Raton became the YMCA of South Palm Beach County, and we opened other locations with the DeVos-Blum Family YMCA in Boynton and the YMCA @901 NCCI Holdings, Inc.

In celebration of our 50th year, throughout 2022 we are highlighting individuals from our Y Family to be featured in our "Where in the Y" series and asking them to explain their passion for the YMCA and why they support us.

Community leaders such as Jackie Reeves, Randy Nobles, Christine E. Lynn, Peter Blum, Alex Price and more.
