Next Events

The United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley is proud to announce our signature event – Champions Among Us presented by PNC – on May 23th at 5pm. We are excited to gather at the beautiful Lake Club to welcome the Notre Dame Football Head Coach Marcus Freeman..



Coach Freeman is one of the country’s top young head coaches and has been rising to this opportunity since his playing days at Ohio State. Freeman played four years for Jim Tressel, starting 37 games at linebacker. A two-time All-Big 10 selection, he finished his career 19th all-time with 268 tackles.
Freeman began his coaching career at Ohio State, then moved to Kent State, Purdue, Cincinnati, and Notre Dame. He served as Defensive Coordinator at three different schools, including Notre Dame. He was named head coach of The Fighting Irish on December 30, 2021, becoming the 30th head coach in program history.



We hope you will join us as well for an evening with Coach Freeman. 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 coaches!
