A half of a million dollars has been donated to the YMCA’s building project in Washington.

The Riverside Casino and Golf Resort pledged $500,000 over five years to the Washington County YMCA. The donation is the largest of its kind given by the Riverside Casino and Gold Resort board to a local organization. The pledge brings fundraising totals to just over $3.5 million of the $9 million needed for phase one of the project. According to the YMCA, the goal is to raise another $1.5 million this spring and then reapply for Washington County Riverboat Foundation and Enhance Iowa grants.
