THIRD SPACE Summer Concert & Silent Auction brings our community together for an engaging summer evening of great local craft beer and music, a variety of exciting silent auction and raffle items, and an inspiring opportunity to share the stories of young lives here in our community impacted profoundly by the YMCA’s Bright Beginnings program.  The event will provide the funds necessary to fund this year’s Bright Beginnings program, with a goal of raising $10,000 to serve at least 70 local youth.

ALL are welcome!

We are grateful to our platinum sponsor and community supporter, Chesapeake Bank.


Many thanks to our 3rd Space partner, Virginia Beer Company, for this joint effort to provide our inaugural 3rd Space event, celebrating community in support of local youth in need.



THIRD SPACE, the name of our event, embodies the concept that both the YMCA and our generous partner, Virginia Beer Company, serve as third spaces for members of our community.  Outside of home and work, we all need the SUPPORT of our community connections in our THIRD SPACE – whether that is the WELLNESS and COMMUNITY space of our local Y, or the SOCIAL and COMMUNITY space of our hometown brewery.  It is fitting that THIRD SPACE, which celebrates the community-minded spirit of these two partners, will benefit the Y’s Bright Beginnings program – a program that depends upon the GENEROSITY of our COMMUNITY in order to enrich the lives of these local youth and prepare them for success.

We are grateful to Chesapeake Bank, a supportive community partner committed to the well-being of our community, and an ideal sponsor for our inaugural THIRD SPACE Summer Concert & Silent Auction.
