(SAVANNAH, GA) Matching proceeds raised from Peter Brodhead’s lecture, the first of five lectures in the Enmark Encourage Health Educational Series 2014, Enmark Stations raised $2,000 for West Broad Street YMCA. The nonprofit also raised funds during the Enmark Dollar Day, receiving $1 for every car wash, $1 at their charity table and $1 donations from Enmark customers.
Enmark presented the check to Chiquita Hanna, Operations Director at West Broad Street YMCA at the second Enmark Encourage Health Educational Lecture on Tuesday, April 29.
Explaining that the funds will be used for summer camp scholarships, Hanna said, “Our mission is to put christian principles into practice through programs to build a healthy mind, spirit and body for all. This donation helps us to enroll children who would not normally be able to attend our summer camp.”
Enmark partnered with Healthy Savannah, the Savannah Morning News, Savannah Magazine and WJCL to present this premier series of five wellness lectures benefiting local nonprofit organizations focused on Wellness.
The Encourage Health Educational Series happens on the last Tuesday of the months of February, April, June, August and October. The series features presentations from the area’s most respected experts sharing insights on nutrition, fitness and general tips for healthy living. The next Encourage Health Education Lecture will be Tuesday, June 24, with John Bennett, Executive Director of the Savannah Bicycle Campaign, detailing ’Five Ways to Make Bicycling a Healthy Part of Your Daily Life.’ Proceeds for this lecture will go to the Savannah Bicycle Campaign.
Lunch and Lecture Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the door. Checks should be made payable to the benefiting charity for that particular lecture. Enmark will match all proceeds and will present a check to the designated charity at each of the lectures. For more information, visit http://myenmarkenjoy.com/Files/EncourageHealth
