YMCA Golden Gala

YMCA Golden Gala Raises $100,000 Announces New Senior Center

Saturday night’s Golden Gala couldn’t have gone much better for YMCA President/CEO Cindy Love-Abounader, who took advantage of the occasion to announce the new $8 million Senior Center that will be coming to the Marco campus starting this year.

 

“With the sponsors and the silent auction items and the 50-50 cash call, we’re estimating just a little over $100,000,” Love-Abounader said. “I loved the energy in the room. Bringing everybody together for community service was just such a good time. That relationship network building and just having fun with each other is really what these events are about. Yeah, we need to raise money, but it's about bringing everybody together.”

Tour de Marco Rolls On

Tour de Marco 14 was originally scheduled for February 18, a day when Marco Island received a rare all-day rain. Tour organizers, by staying on top of the weather forecasts, were able to shift gears at the last minute and moved the popular bicycle tour to March 3, where they were rewarded with perfect cycling weather: mild temperatures, cloudy skies, light wind, and temperatures in the low 70s. A crowd of 270 riders enjoyed the 30 and 15-mile courses through Marco with nary a mishap.

 

“After we had to reschedule due to the wetter weather,” said tour director Jennifer Johnson, "I'm happy to say that today it went off very smoothly. We had 40 riders registered day of the event. It was probably the highest numbers we've ever had.”
