Nickle Electrical has donated $4,000 to the YMCA Open Doors Program, part of the Strong Kings Campaign, as the major sponsor for the 21st annual golf tournament and auction. The program has a sliding fee scale designed to fit each individual’s monetary state and is utilized by people who are temporarily out of work, working on fixed incomes, overwhelmed by medical bills or experiencing other forms of financial hardship.
“It’s the sponsorship of the golf tournament that helps us have a bottom line to benefit those financial assistance programs,” said Terry Rasberry, executive director of the Sussex Family YMCA. “Because of this gift, there will be literally hundreds of kids that can go to summer camp; there will be kids who can have swim lessons, and kids who can be in basketball leagues who otherwise wouldn’t have a chance to do that.”
Nickle has been supporting the fundraiser since 2009, and this is the first year the company is the sole title sponsor for the event taking place at Rehoboth Beach Country Club Monday, May 13. Over the past four years, Nickle has donated a total of $11,000 to the Sussex Family YMCA.
“We are proud to support the YMCA and all it does for the community,” said Nickle CEO/President Steve Dignan. “Nickle believes in promoting youth development, and we hope this donation goes a long way toward helping children lead an active and healthy life.”
