Spitz to make a splash at Indianapolis gala to benefit YMCA swim programs
Considered one of the greatest Olympic athletes of all-time, globally-renowned swimmer and entrepreneur Mark Spitz will headline the 6th annual Revolution Ball to benefit the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis on Jan. 26, 2019, at Historic Union Station. Spitz will welcome guests, sign autographs and speak at the VIP reception.
The YMCA’s signature fundraising event—where black ties are optional, sneakers required—raised nearly $100,000 this year. Tickets are $125 or $175 for the VIP experience. Proceeds from the 2019 gala will fund water programs, including lifesaving swim lessons, for families in need. Purchase tickets today! Sponsorships are available.
A Storied Career
A fierce competitor, Spitz swam at the YMCA as a kid and is perhaps best remembered for his remarkable seven world records and seven gold medals at the 1972 Olympic Games.
The Signature Smile
Aside from his feats in the pool, 68-year-old Spitz is also famously known for the mustache he donned as a competitive swimmer, which he claims to have grown out of rebellion against the clean-cut look imposed on him while at college, swimming for coach Doc Counsilman at Indiana University.
