All Event Proceeds to Benefit the Y Support-A-Child Program

Pawtucket, RI (June 16, 2017)The YMCA of Pawtucket hosted yet another successful All-Star Outing, in partnership with event sponsors the Pawtucket Red Sox, at McCoy Stadium on June 8th. This annual event raised $30,000 for the YMCA’s Support-A-Child Fund, which assists families that cannot afford to send their children to summer day camps or pay for a YMCA youth membership. Many local businesses and organizations stepped up to the plate this year to help make this fun-filled event a tremendous success.

Charlie Clifford, Chief Executive Officer of the YMCA of Pawtucket, was pleased with the tremendous support this event received from local business partners, stating: “The goal of the event each year is to generate sufficient funds to offer free camper-ships and youth memberships to the children of our community.  At the YMCA of Pawtucket, we remain committed to our mission of offering the best programming and services to all children and families regardless of their economic situation, and the overwhelming support of our sponsors has helped to make this possible.” Adding, “And I would be remiss if I did not thank our committee for their tireless efforts on behalf of the Y, specifically, event chairs, Tim Reichardt and Mark House, auction chair, Eileen Ryan-Saeger and the Y’s own, Jim Stewart.”

The Pawtucket Red Sox organization has been a loyal supporter of the Y’s annual outing for over 20 years, and without their support this event would not be possible. Attendees to this year’s outing enjoyed an all-you-can-eat barbeque, as well as an exciting game.

Additionally, Janet Greene of Cumberland, RI was the grand prize raffle winner of a trip for two to the 2017 All-Star game hosted by the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park on July 11, 2017. Transportation, cash and hotel included.
