Golfers at The Family YMCA Golf Tournament on August 26 not only have a chance to win big cash and other prizes, but they can also play soccer, ring toss and other games on the course while supporting a charitable cause. Most player fees are a donation that ensures no one turns away from Y programs due to inability to pay.

Y CEO Chris Daniels said golfers and other donors are helping 100 people, half of whom are children, to participate in Y programs.

“Golfers tell us it’s a really fun tournament, and we appreciate them playing to help our local community members,” he said.

“We are pleased and grateful to once again partner with the Los Alamos Golf Association (LAGA) who host our registration through their website,” Daniels said.

“We are limited to 108 players, so we encourage everyone to register as early as possible to secure a spot,” he said.

ABOUT THE Y: The Family YMCA is a non-profit charitable organization that was established in 1955 by volunteers who recognized the need for a place where families could recreate themselves together. In 2007, Española city administrators awarded the Y a contract and partial funding to provide a teen center as a resource for youth in the community. In 2011, Los Alamos County awarded the Y a contract to operate a center locally. In 2022, the Y plans to award $90,000 in scholarships to 100 people, half of whom are children in the Y After School and Camp programs.
