Today, The Caine Halter Family Y held the annual YMCA Open Doors Campaign Celebration Luncheon. The Greenville YMCA branches, sponsors and donors came together to celebrate children, health and wellness and social responsibility. The Caine Halter Y raised a total of $281,000 to fund the Open Doors Campaign! As the Campaign Chairman, our President and CEO Stephen Edgerton unveiled the final amounts for each branch. Together, all of the branches raised a grand total of $1,013,374 that will benefit 8,200 families in the Greenville community. This great feat not only exceeded the campaign goal of 1 million, but also was a 17 % increase over last year’s campaign.
In the spirit of making Greenville healthier,The YMCA of Greenville welcomed the passionate and energetic guest speaker Dr. Ann Kulze, M.D. She discussed how fruits/veggies and exercise are the two fundamental health tools to a happy and healthy life. As she stated, “You should love the life you live.” 15 % of her book sales from this luncheon go back to the Y.
