Annual YMCA fundraiser gives back
The Salt Fork YMCA Piccadilly Auction & Ladies Night Out committee has begun planning for its fifth annual fundraising event, to be held Feb. 23, 2019.
While the committee looks forward to the future, they want to take a moment to reflect on the outcomes created by the strong and enthusiastic community support for this event. The proceeds from the past four Piccadilly events have allowed the YMCA to improve not only the facilities, but also the outreach to the community, organizers said. The YMCA was able to eliminate $30,000 of debt. Another $50,000 was used for capital improvements, including resurfacing of the gymnasium and aerobic area, repair and resurfacing of the parking lot, and further investment in the Salt Fork YMCA Scholarship Program. Additionally, $30,000 was invested into the Shermaine Riggins Memorial Endowment Fund.
Committee members say they appreciate the community’s support and look forward to another successful event. For more information contact Rachel Hayworth, YMCA business director, at 660-886-9622.
