Friends and Families!

Our first ever gala, the “Galazo”, was held on March 5, 2022 at the Chicago Theater Works. YSI Families and Friends came together to create positive change for Chicago children.  Thanks to the funds raised, The YSI Foundation has been able to provide free soccer development to youth and provide meaningful employment for youth through our mentorship program. 

The YSI Foundation Second Annual Galazo will be held on March 3, 2023. We can’t get wait to come together again this year to create positive change for Chicago children! 


Last year we had special performance by Grammy Nominated Opera Singer and YSI Mom, Janai Brugger, food from great Chicago restaurants and many silent auction items.
