2019 Endless Summer


Please join us in supporting our signature fundraising event, Fall Into Endless Summer X, at the Tunxis Country Club in Farmington CT on October 25th, 2019. 

This year our award recipients for the Ken Griffen Compass Award will be Michael and Rita Carrier. This is a special New Britain-Berlin YMCA award given each year to a family who through their actions and intent has created a culture of giving back and service. Through this important work they are showing others on how to make a difference. They are a compass for all of us.

All proceeds from the Endless Summer event will benefit our Annual Support Campaign which aims to provide over $200,000 in financial assistance. These funds ensure everyone, without regard to age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive at the Y. Many of the children and families who receive this assistance would not have the opportunity to learn how to swim, go to summer camp or participate in our childcare or sports programs if it wasn't for this financial support.

Please join us for music, dancing, delicious food, open bar and silent and live auctions.
