YMCA of Pawtucket 2018 All-Star Outing Raises Over $32,000 to Support Local Youth Programming

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

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (July 16, 2018) — 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 21st. This annual event raised over $32,000 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. Attendees to this year’s outing enjoyed an all-you-can-eat barbeque, as well as an exciting game.

Charlie Clifford, Chief Executive Officer of the YMCA of Pawtucket, is “overwhelmed with the continued support of the sponsors who make the event possible.” Clifford explains: “At the YMCA of Pawtucket, we are committed to providing the best opportunities to all children and families, regardless of their economic situation. The event’s goal is to raise funds so children in the communities we serve can attend summer camp. The success of this event would not have been possible without our sponsors and the tremendous work of our All Star Committee.”

For over 20 years, the Pawtucket Red Sox organization has been a loyal supporter of the Y’s annual outing. Without their support, this event would not be possible.

Additionally, congratulations to Nicole Latendresse of Pawtucket, RI.  Latendresse was the grand prize raffle winner of a trip for two to the 2018 Major League Baseball All-Star game hosted by the Washington Nationals in Washington, D.C. on July 17, 2018. Transportation, cash and hotel included.
