Next Events

The United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley is proud to announce that our signature event – Champions Among Us presented by PNC – will take place on June 1st at 5pm.

After a difficult 2020 with the pandemic forcing us to cancel our events, we are excited to safely gather once again at the beautiful Lake Club to welcome Ohio State University Football Head Coach Ryan Day and our very own Youngstown State University President Jim Tressel.  Coach Day finished his second season by taking the Buckeyes to the National Championship. With an impressive 23-2 overall record, Day has led the team to two Big Ten Titles and was named Big Ten Coach of the Year in 2019.  Day will be joined by one of his esteemed predecessors, former Youngstown State University and Ohio State University Head Coach Jim Tressel. Tressel boasts an amazing football career of his own. While at YSU, he went 135-57 with FOUR National Championships during his tenure. He then took the helm at OSU in 2001. He led the Buckeyes to a National Championship in his second season. President Tressel will join Coach Day for an exciting evening to raise money for our United Way.

We hope you will join us as well for an evening with Coach Ryan Day and President Jim Tressel.

You will enjoy the Lake Club’s exquisite cuisine with hors d’oervres, sit-down dinner, and open bar before the up-close-and-personal fireside chat with the future of Ohio State Football and an OSU legend!
