YMCA of Greater Providence’s 2nd Annual ‘Y Heroes’ Fundraiser
The YMCA of Greater Providence (GPYMCA) will celebrate Y Heroes at its second annual fundraiser, which recognizes members and supporters who have had a significant impact on the Y, its members, and the community, at a Heroes Luncheon on Thursday, April 12th.
At the inaugural Heroes event in 2017, the GPYMCA recognized Olympic champion swimmer Elizabeth Beisel; former world champion lightweight boxer Gary “Tiger” Balletto; and The Champlin Foundation. More than $275,000 was raised for the Steven O’Donnell Scholarship Fund, which will help provide access to camp and additional resources for deserving families who might not otherwise have access to YMCA programs.
The 2018 Heroes will be announced on April 9th.
