As some of you know we had the opportunity to help raise money for the YMCA “BACK A YOUTH” program. The community had been raising money for quite some time, we pulled together with Edward Jones and the YMCA to plan a basketball game in order to help reach their goal of $155,000 in order to provide scholarships for youth to join the YMCA at no cost. Many other businesses in town helped put this event on:
- Farm Credit of Enid
- Pheasant Run Golf Course
- Todd Hamilton – Farmers Insurance Agency
- Holly Gannett Photography + Design.
All teams contributed to the oversized check that was presented to the Denny Price Family YMCA after the game. Funds were also raised by those in attendance through voting by donations to choose which team would dress up and perform during the half-time show. Team Edward Jones took home the win for the night but Team Ewbank, Hennigh and McVay showed their skills as well while hula hooping in dresses at the hilarious half-time performance.
At the end of the night we raised $2,252 which we were pleased with. Thank you to everyone who came out to support us and help raise money for such a wonderful program.
The event was published in the April issue of ETOWN, local magazine right out of End, Oklahoma. Check it out…
