Y Seekers Celebrate Mardi Gras, Sponsor M & T Bank
Members of the Central Bucks Family YMCA Seekers programs recently celebrated Mardi Gras with dancing, costumes and games. The party is a long-standing tradition of the Y’s Seekers program for adults with special needs, which has been in existence for over 25 years.
M&T Bank, who earlier this year pledged $6,000 in support of the Y’s Ability Programs for adults and teens with special needs, also attended to show their support for the program and formally present their check.
The funds will be used to provide opportunities for local teens and adults with special needs to benefit from Seekers, an evening program designed to provide socialization, health and fitness, sports and other activities to adults age 18 and over with special needs. A large percentage of participants in the program attend with help from the Y’s financial assistance program, which is largely funded by donations from corporate and individual donors.
