“Building a better us takes hard work, dedication and most of all, collaboration. From planning and construction to managing daily tours, hundreds of volunteers give their time and talents to ensure we provide everyone with the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. A huge Thank You to our major sponsors for 2017 including Knez Homes, WKYC-TV3, The Chevy Network/Classic Chevrolet, and Guhde Flooring,” said Scott Taylor, Lake County YMCA Chief Advancement Officer.
Since 1993, proceeds from the Dream House project have exceeded $4 million (approximately $200,000 per year) for program and facility enhancements that allow the Y to engage children, families and seniors in diverse programs at each Lake County YMCA branch (Central Y-Painesville, West End Y-Willoughby, East End Y-Madison, and the Outdoor Family Center).
