DENVER is CLOSE TO SEEING ~ SALLY'S YMCA ~ (LAKE NORMAN, NC)

 

Denver is getting a YMCA ~ Sally's Y

Denver is in the process of getting a YMCA! It is something that I have heard since they finished the Lincolnton YMCA several years ago; even with the rapid growth in the Denver area there wasn't an urgency until David and Jo Clark got involved.

On April 4, 2004, their only daughter Sally McKenzie Clark and her cousin Anna Grace Jordan were tragically killed in a car accident by a drunk driver. Both girls were only 19 at the time, with a lifetime of plans and dreams ahead of them.  

After Sally's death, her family and friends decided to create a lasting memorial in her honor. They wanted to not only remember her life, but they also wanted to celebrate what she loved. With Sally's love of God and passion for sports and the outdoors Sally's parents came up with the idea to build a YMCA in her name. Included will be a Chapel in Anna Grace Jordan's name. Jo Clark and other members of Grace's family have contributed the money for the memorial.

 

 

With this David and Jo Clark have donated about 50 acres off of Optimist Club Road at the new four-lane Highway 16; said to be worth around $1,000,000 for the proposed site. Along with this they are donating their share of the wrongful-death lawsuit settlement estimated at $283,000. YMCA supporters have already raised close to $6 million of the $7 million they need to raise before construction on the building can begin.

The next scheduled fundraiser for Sally's Y. Will be a dinner theater; the event is the play "Chicago" which will be presented by Grant Ewing and the Verdict Ridge Backyard Players.

 

The Dates: September 19 - 20, 2008

Time: 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: Verdict Ridge, Denver, NC

Event Cost: TBD
