A Special Message from the Young Men's Business League President

"Since founding Austin Sunshine Camps in 1928, Young Men’s Business League has continued to support ASC as its sole philanthropic endeavor through volunteerism, financial contributions, and governance and I’m proud of our work this year to carry forward such an important legacy. This year, YMBL members helped send 868 kids to camp by raising nearly $300,000 through our annual fundraising campaign, which leverages the power of our individual networks to support ASC’s mission. Additionally, YMBL members spent countless hours planning and producing major revenue-generating events such as the Austin Under 40 Awards, Sunshine Run, and our annual golf tournament so that we could, in turn, contribute those net proceeds to ASC. Most importantly, YMBL’s membership spent more than 1,000 hours volunteering with campers at camp events such as camper pick up, Carnival Night, Canoe Night, and our new ice cream social. Engaging directly with our campers is one of the most impactful and rewarding opportunities we offer our membership and through these we are able to create meaningful, life-changing experiences for these deserving kids."
