For Whom are we Fundraising?

All proceeds will benefit charitable causes through the Madisonville Rotary Club and the Hopkins County Family YMCA, both of which are actively committed to improving the lives of children and families in our community. 


Madisonville Rotary Club will soon commence the fifth year of its impactful Build-a-Bed project, which has gifted 140 beds to children in need.  For the last seventy-one years, Rotary has hosted its annual Rotary football and cheerleading leagues, fostering a sense of work ethic, integrity, and sportsmanship in the 175 participating children each year.  Moreover, Rotary provides $4,000 in post-secondary scholarships annually.


Similarly, the YMCA has a long-standing tradition of making a difference for youth and children through their child-centered programs, their facility, and their commitment to those in need.  The YMCA offers professional, licensed childcare, swim lessons, a variety of youth sports leagues, and family wellness options.  It also hosts a thriving youth swim team and provides a safe space for young people to swim and play basketball recreationally.  What is more, in 2018 alone, the YMCA gave over $92,000 back to the community in the form of financial assistance to ensure that no person was turned away due to inability to pay.  The YMCA helped 1,289 individuals with some form of assistance, increasing their access to the facility and programs.  Additionally, through partnerships, your YMCA served nearly 100,000 FREE meals to the children of Hopkins County through the YMCA Food Program.

A successful fundraiser will positively impact the YMCA and Madisonville Rotary Club and in turn strengthen the communities they serve.  The two organizations are pivotal in teaching core values of Honesty, Caring, Respect, Faith and Responsibility.  Your donation, your attendance and your participation will be turned into a positive experience for a child that will impact them for life.”
