Annual Sports Dinner

sports-dinner-ecard-webThe Annual Rady JCC “Y” Sports Dinner has become Winnipeg’s premier sports event and is the major fundraiser for the Rady JCC. For the past 44 years, we’ve brought some of the biggest names in sports to Winnipeg, featuring Magic Johnson, Bobby Hull, Dan Marino, Don Cherry, Mickey Mantle, Peyton Manning and Cal Ripken, Jr.

The “Y” Sports Dinner provides the Rady JCC with the financial support to fund scholarships and programs for members of our community that wouldn’t otherwise have access to these services, including financially disadvantaged families, children, youth and adults.
