Since 1993, Lake County YMCA Dream House has not only given a winning family the opportunity of a lifetime, but also provided more than $5 million (approximately $200,000 per year) which has helped the Y strengthen our community by bringing about meaningful change through resources that enrich lives. Annual proceeds from the project enhance the Y with facility and equipment improvements for the more than 46,000 members and program participants at each of its branches.
