Banner Year For Special Night for Special Kids Food & Cheer Tasting

The Hamilton Area YMCA honored Kathy Rhead, former Hamilton Area YMCA S.K.O.R. Director, with the Maurice T. Perilli Friend of S.K.O.R. Award at the Annual Special Night for Special Kids food & cheer tasting. 

Presented by Champagne Sponsor Hamilton Honda, this annual event raised critical funds to support the Hamilton Area YMCA's S.K.O.R. (Special Kids Organized Recreation) programming for individuals with special needs. This year's event saw record attendance and raised nearly $30,000!
