The Bronx YMCA held its eighth annual Bon Appetit Fundraiser on Wednesday, September 10, featuring tasting and networking opportunities from all over the Bronx. The event, attended by about 200 people, raised more than $12,000 for the Annual Campaign. The Annual Campaign is a YMCA initiative to raise money to help families and individuals participate in the many programs offered at the facility. The initiative has allowed low-income individuals to open up memberships, has helped adults and children learn to swim, and has helped send hundreds of kids to summer day camp and after school programs.
