Thank you so much to all who supported our inaugural YMCA Legacy Gala on Saturday May 12th! With more than 200 supporters in attendance at this spectacular event, we celebrated the great work of our Haverhill and Plaistow Community YMCAs and we honored dedicated community leaders Brian Dempsey and Kay Galloway.
The evening was a great success. Proceeds will help children in our community that need us most. Your support makes it possible for them to experience the magic of summer camp and also participate in our summer learning loss prevention program where they build reading skills that help keep them on track academically all year long.
We cannot do it without you so thank you for joining us in making a difference and helping children be the best that they can be!
