NEW BRITAIN - The Meriden-New Britain-Berlin YMCAâ€™s signature annual fundraiser is less than a month away
The organization will host its annual Endless Summer Luau from 6:30 to 11 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Tunxis Plantation Country Club in Farmington.
All proceeds will benefit the YMCAâ€™s annual Community Support Campaign, an effort to ensure that everyone -regardless of age, income or background - has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive at the Y.
The Community Support Campaign provides financial assistance for memberships, child care and camps.
â€śWe never want to turn anybody away for financial reasons,â€ť said Desiree Agosto, membership and marketing manager for the YMCA.
The Y will hand out its Compass Awards at the fundraiser, an honor that recognizes community leaders, Agosto said. This yearâ€™s Compass Award recipients will be Betty Fumiatti and Gerry Berthiaume.
Tickets for the fundraiser are $90 for one or $175 for a pair. YMCA employees and their spouses can purchase tickets for $50. There are also options to purchase tickets for a whole table - $700 for a table for eight or $875 for a table for 10.
Sponsorships are still available for the fundraiser. For more information about the event and ways to become a sponsor or buy tickets, contact Desiree Agosto at 860-229-3787 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
