SYCC fundraising campaign sees boost from recent contributions & Elimination Dinner
October 15, 2018
BUCKHANNON, WV: Stockert Youth & Community Center (SYCC) provides crucial services for area youth and families, including afterschool care and tutoring for local students, summer camp, and meeting rooms for community support groups. Youth and adults alike participate in sports, fitness, and art classes at SYCC. Having outgrown the current space, a campaign is ongoing to raise money for an expanded multipurpose facility that will be used for athletics, recreation, and events. On Friday, the campaign received a huge boost from Buckhannon Toyota and the proceeds from the elimination dinner. Combined, these contributions totaled more than $30,000 bringing the campaign total to close to $230,000.
Buckhannon Toyota, led by Jason Minsker, donated $20,000 to Stockert Youth & Community Center for the new facility. This is the largest donation that SYCC, or the City, has ever received. Meanwhile, the Buckhannon Elks Club gave $1,250 and Buckhannon Moose Club donated $1,500 recently. The Hodgesville Lions Club, Tennerton Lions Club, and Mr. Frank Beckner also made contributions.
Friday evening, the SYCC elimination dinner netted close to $10,000 through ticket sales, raffles, and auction items. Thank you so much to all who contributed an item for auction or raffle, and to everyone who attended, enjoyed a nice meal, and bid on the fun items. We also would like to send a big thank you to all of the volunteers and staff who helped put on the event.
