Party With A Purpose

2022 Party With A Purpose: Honoring Past President Russ Darrow with Special Guest Pat Connaughton

The Kettle Moraine YMCA is celebrating 53 years of serving Washington County and this year we are highlighting the Darrow Family.  Russ Darrow served as Board President for the Kettle Moraine YMCA from 1985-1987.  During this time the YMCA was developing its roots in West Bend.  Today, the Russ Darrow Group continues to support the Y in many ways, but most prominently with their Send a Kid to Camp promotion that is held in the spring each year.  This helps ensures the promise that nobody is turned away from YMCA programs or activities because of their inability to pay.  Specifically each year over 1,000 children attend one of the Y’s four day camp locations.  1 in every five children that attend receive some form of financial assistance.

This special event will include a fun evening of meet and greets and Q&A with 2021 NBA Champion Milwaukee Bucks player Pat Connaughton.
