The Metropolitican YMCA of the Oranges recently celebrated a successful campaign, exceeding its $950,000 public annual campaign goal by more than $30,000 on Wednesday, March 12, at the Hanover Manor in East Hanover.

The theme of the event was "Cause Driven, Race to Finish — A Celebration of Community, Mission and Impact."

Locally in Hardyston, Sussex County YMCA raised $205,194 towards the Association’s goal.

The Annual Campaign raises funds for child care, community service opportunities, camp scholarships, membership, program assistance, and teen leadership development — ensuring everyone has an opportunity to benefit from YMCA programs, regardless of their ability to pay.

The YMCA serves as a gathering place for each community it serves. It’s a safe-haven for kids to play and do homework afterschool, seniors meet for group exercise, social activities and to connect, and where adults come to learn healthy lifestyle choices.

As a leading nonprofit for strengthening community, gifts made will help the Y advance programming and services that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. More importantly, 100 percent of gifts made will make a direct impact on the residents in our communities.

Throughout 2014, The Metro YMCA plans to raise $1.5 million dollars, including the public campaign, grants, The Kids Care Club Golf Outing, events and sponsorships. All donations will be used to fund programs at every branch of the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges.

“I am very pleased of our volunteers and staff working together toward the ultimate goal of attracting $1.5 million in support of our communities, said Richard K. Gorab, president and chief executive officer. "By design, our Annual Campaign is meant to provide services and memberships to youth, families and seniors. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate in YMCA programs. With a successful campaign, we look forward to making a positive impact in our communities,” said Richard K. Gorab, President and CEO.
