(PRESS RELEASE)_West Palm Beach, FL (June 14, 2021) – On Tuesday, June 2, YMCA of the Palm Beaches received a $10,000 grant from Children’s Foundation of Palm Beach County. The funds granted will help send local at-risk children to summer day camp where they can enjoy fun daily activities, build friendships, learn to swim, and be cared for in a safe and nurturing environment.
“We are so grateful to the Children’s Foundation of Palm Beach County for their generous grant,” said Tim Coffield, CEO and President of the YMCA of the Palm Beaches. “This funding will be especially instrumental in supporting single and dual working parents who struggle to find affordable childcare while school is out of session during the summer months.”
The YMCA is the nation’s leading provider of child care services and believes in nurturing the potential of every child through programming that provides a safe and healthy place to learn new skills, develop healthy habits, form trusting relationships and build self-confidence. Programs such as the YMCA’s summer camp, help fill in the gaps while children are not in school, so they can continue to learn and develop throughout the year. The YMCA of the Palm Beaches has been serving Palm Beach County since 1917.
The Children’s Foundation of Palm Beach County’s mission is to identify and fund projects in the Boca Raton and Palm Beach County areas to aid at-risk children and their families in need. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $13.3 million dollars to fund specific programs and projects for more than 30 local charitable organizations. Each year, Children’s Foundation of Palm Beach County serves more than 9,000 children, and its volunteers give 45,000 hours of their time each year.
For more information on other funding opportunities, contact Peter Thate, Development Director of the YMCA of the Palm Beaches, at 561-968-9622 ext. 237 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Trifecta of Folk Greats:
The Kingston Trio, The Brothers Four, and The Limeliters
An incredible evening of music is in store as three legendary folk groups take the Kravis Center stage. Grammy Awards Lifetime Achievement recipient The Kingston Trio rose to fame as the kings of acoustic music in the 50s and 60s. They have charmed audiences around the world for over 60 years performing their timeless classics including Where Have All the Flowers Gone? and Tom Dooley. The Brothers Four are considered pioneers in the folk revival genre and are known for their hits Greenfields, Yellow Bird and Try to Remember. Their all-acoustic performances consist of guitars, banjo, mandolin, upright bass, and of course, the trademark rich blend of their four voices. For more than six decades, The Limeliters have entertained standing-room-only crowds with their incredible musical talent and zany sense of humor.
