The Cleveland Avenue YMCA of Greater Montgomery helps youth and families in the community by providing programs to make sure no child is left behind due to financial issues. These programs are funded through fundraiser's like the Cleveland Avenue Golf Classic.

This year the center has broken a fundraising record, raising over $40,000 from the golf classic. The classic is being held Friday at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Senator Course with the shotgun start beginning at 8 a.m. A lunch with prizes will be held at 1 p.m.

This money raised from this event will help over 300 children go to summer camp, have hot lunch, evening snacks, swimming lessons and educations and cultural classes. It will also provide after school care and participation in youth sports for those children who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it.
