YMCA Raises $46,000 on DuckY DerbY ~ Strong Kids Campaign
Special thanks to all those who supported the Illinois Valley YMCA DuckY DerbY held on Sunday, November 3rd. The Derby was a huge success for the Strong Kids Campaign that reaches out to support those in need. Last year the Y gave nearly $200,000 in scholarship assistance to those who needed child care, swim lessons, after school care, tumbling, and many to receive affordable Y programs. Special thanks to the Cooperate Sponsors and the leadership of our Head Duck & President of LaSalle State Bank Jeff Ellis, and Peggy Cain our Y Development Director for their important work in making a stronger community through the Y.
