About the 2021 Burgundy & Gold Brunch Event
Date: Saturday, June 12, 2021 at 10:30 AM
Location: Youth For Tomorrow Campus
The past 12 months have been, without question, the most challenging in our collective memory and certainly in the 35-year history of Youth For Tomorrow. But thanks to generous friends and donors like you, we have been able to keep our mission going strong, operations running 24/7, and our hearts open to continue welcoming children and families in crisis who need our help.
One of the most difficult parts of the past year has been not being able to be together in person like we usually do throughout the year.
That’s why we are so excited to—finally—come “off the sidelines” after being apart for so long, and to join together in a special edition of our beloved Burgundy & Gold event, with a few special twists unique for this year:
Be assured we will follow all local and state guidelines for a safe gathering—one of the main reasons we will gather outdoors under a big tent.
This event also will be livestreamed for those who cannot, or prefer not to attend in person.
Please help us make this event one to remember—a true celebration of the heart and spirit that is Youth For Tomorrow. And help us keep our mission going strong for years to come. Save the date to join us and show your leadership by stepping forward as a sponsor.
We can’t wait to step off the sidelines and be together with you again, united in raising funds to support Youth For Tomorrow and changing the lives of children and families in our community.

Youth For Tomorrow was founded by former Redskins Head Coach Joe Gibbs in 1986. His vision was to provide area teenage boys and girls who were experiencing traumatic circumstances with their families, many times abuse and neglect, a place to call home. While most youth are experiencing a life of hope and promise, our children have had frequent failures with family, school and peers -- in addition to unimaginable personal tragedies.
"I believe there is nothing more important in life than what we leave behind in terms of how we have helped others. Years from now no one wil remember who had a great season or who won the Super Bowl. That's why Youth For Tomorrow is so important. For each child that we help, we start a chain of good results because he or she will influence his or her own spouse and children and others around them. And they will pass along what they have learned to others. What will last in this world is what kind of influence we had on others and making a difference in the life of a child." Coach Joe Gibbs
