YMCA Hosts Celebrity Classic Weekend

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — After being wildly successful in Western Mass. last year, the YMCA of Greater Springfield hosted their second annual Celebrity Classic Weekend.

The event featured local, regional and national celebrities from a wide variety of¬†professions. The weekend’s activities included a golf outing, cocktail reception and auction, and a family bowling.

Besides meeting a lot of famous people, the YMCA staff hoped that kids would also feel like celebrities themselves.

“It’s just a beautiful weekend for the city and for the kids,” said Travis Best, a former NBA player. “It just combines all that the YMCA is doing.”

The proceeds from the weekend’s events will benefit the YMCA, which helps to improve the lives of teens in 14 cities and towns across Massachusetts.
