Just the GuysThank you to Peter and Joanne Kenny for their generous $22,500 gift to support the Just the Guys program over the next three years (2016-2018). Their donation will help to further enhance the program as well as the overall experience for both participants and those looking to become young leaders in the community.  The Kenny’s have been long time donors to the YMCA of Oakville supporting both Together As Girls in the past and now Just The Guys.
