WESTFIELD’S YELLOW TIE BALL RAISES OVER $43K FOR YOUTH ASSISTANCE

 

Westfield, IN – In its tenth year, the Westfield Yellow Tie Ball raised $43,500 for Westfield’s Youth Assistance Program.

 

“This year’s Mayor’s Yellow Tie Ball had a special meaning as it marked the tenth year,” explains Mayor Andy Cook. “It is, without question, the most important project that this city is doing because it deals with our most important asset: our youth.”

 

The annual event raised $20K in pledges from those in attendance. Guests also participated in a raffle for a diamond bracelet donated by Moyer Fine Jewelers. The remaining funds were raised from the event’s many sponsors, which included Citizens Energy Group, Regions Insurance, Kreig DeVault, Riverview Hospital, United Consulting and many more.

 

“We are extremely grateful to receive such a large donation to The Westfield Youth Assistance Program,” says Tricia Akers, Executive Director of Youth Assistance Program. “We are particularly grateful to Mayor Cook and The City of Westfield for their unprecedented support. The generosity of our sponsors and community members will enable us to help so many more children and families in need.

 

Developed as a pilot program in Westfield, Youth Assistance has grown to include every school system in Hamilton County, as well as Zionsville schools in neighboring Boone County. The program provides mentoring, camp and recreation opportunities, tutoring assistance and other services designed to assist the healthy development of Hamilton County youth.
