      YMCA members raising money for leadership conference

      Six members from the Marquette YMCA Global Ambassadors are hosting multiple events to help them raise enough money for a leadership conference in Prague, Czech Republic.

      Sunday's fundraiser was held at the Ore Dock Brewery in Marquette.

      So far the group has raised $2,000, but they need $3,000 more for their trip at the end of July. The conference will last 10 days.

      "We hope to bring back a different global perspective, strengthen our competency and developing leadership skills. We also hope to participate in challenging workshops that focus on youth," said Samantha Collins, YMCA Board Member.

      The group said they are also hoping to keep in contact with the people they meet so that they can continue to share ideas.

      List of upcoming fundraising events:

      July 21 Car Wash -- YMCA Parking Lot, 11 a.m.- 4 p.m.

      July 27 Community Rummage Sale -- YMCA Gym, 8 a.m.- 1 p.m.
