Madison Area YMCA's Spinathon Raises $1,100 for the Y's Annual Fund

February 13, 2013 at 10:58 AM

The Madison Area YMCA’s two-hour Spinathon raised $1,100 to benefit the Y’s 2013 Annual Fund on Sunday, January 27.

The Annual Fund is a financial assistance program that allows the Madison Area YMCA to advance its charitable mission of providing facility and program access to area children and families who are unable to afford the full cost of membership, child care and early childhood education, summer camp and programs.

"This event was a great success largely due to the participants who have a tremendous love and respect for the Madison Area Y, its mission and what it provides to the community,” said Manali Patel, volunteer coordinator of the Spinathon. “Most of the participants left with a smile on their faces and felt that it was for a great cause. A big thank you to all 22 participants and the two amazing spin instructors, Ali Dwyer and Ann Marie Battaglia, for their time as well as generosity."

Kirby Children’s Center enabling a young parent to look for a job.

Closed Fund Open Mind

Closed-end funds (CEFs) can play an important role in a diversified investment portfolio. They offer benefits similar to those of an open-end mutual fund, but also sport unique advantages.  

Unlike a traditional open-end mutual fund, CEFs have a fixed number of shares available to trade. Their price is not tied to the value of the underlying portfolio. The only way the number of shares ...
