Last year over 250 people helped to raise over $30,000. The funds stay in the Brandon area and helps give children and families the chance to experience the Y. Rick Lewis, Chair of the event said, “Corks and Forks is an outstanding celebration of an outstanding cause. The setting is food, drink and entertainment, but it is a great chance for us to tell the story that for over 160 years the YMCA has been here to support children, family and community. With your generosity, we can be here for another 160 years.”
Christy Lowe, Youth and Family Director for the Campo Y said, “Our Y is celebrating a decade in the Valrico community. I look forward to celebrating our achievements as the Y continues to be the ‘rock’ our community needs us to be!”
This is a 21 and over event. A sleep over ($25) for children ages 5 to 12 is planned at the Brandon Y from 6 p.m.-8 a.m.
