What’s happening this fall at your Y

Raise a Racquet Raises Funds for the Y

The Y’s annual Raise a Racquet Squash Tournament was held this month and this fun, friendly round robin team format raised more than $12,500 for the Y’s annual campaign which allows the Y to provide financial assistance to ensure that every family, regardless of their ability to pay, has access to all Y programs and services. This annual event is supported by many squash fans, including board member Pat Milner who was instrumental in making this event a success. A huge thank you to our court sponsors Crawford Fund Management and Stroud International for their generous support.
