Matco Builders & Developers and the YMCA of Greater Rochester presented the keys to the “Dream Home” to benefit the Northwest and Westside YMCA Invest in Youth campaigns on July 31, 2012. In March, Matco broke ground on construction of the 2,100-square-foot, colonial-style home located in All Seasons subdivision in Hilton at Lot 427 Fallwood Terrace. Bidding started on the home in early May. The family purchased the home for $209,000.
“It’s humbling to see so many families bid on a home that benefits Invest in Youth programs,” said Will Gallagher, Westside YMCA vice president. “We are fortunate to be a part of such a generous community, between the family purchasing the home and Matco Builders for donating their services.”
“It was truly an honor to be involved in this experience from start to finish,” said Marco Mattioli, president of Matco Builders & Developers. “We received overwhelming support for the groundbreaking, then the bidding, and to see it all come together while we present the keys to the family is very exciting.”
The YMCA Invest in Youth Campaign provides financial-assistance scholarships to individuals and families who otherwise would be unable to afford YMCA programs such as summer camp, child care, health and wellness, and senior programs.
