We will honor Michael Markulec with the LARRY ROTHWELL SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AWARD and Kevin Ryan with the COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP AWARD.

You may recall that Hopewell Valley YMCA has selected Michael Markulec to receive the Larry Rothwell Social Responsibility Award named for Larry Rothwell of Pennington Quality Market.  Michael Markulec is a former mayor of Hopewell Township, where he was instrumental 10 years ago in working with Kim Bruno to start the “free teen center” with the YMCA.  The Youth Activity Center has been an integral part of the YMCA’s mission supporting over 20 teens each day providing them a safe haven to gather with friends. Michael was liaison to the Hopewell Township Youth Advisory Board.  He is a long-time volunteer and champion of Hopewell Valley Wrestling and Football Clubs.  Michael also served two terms as a member of the Hopewell Valley Regional Schools Board of Education.

Our prestigious Community Leadership Award is honoring Kevin Ryan this year. Kevin Ryan has been an active member of the Hopewell Community for over 33 years through many local sports associations including the Hopewell Valley YMCA sports and Special Olympics programming.  Through the HV Chapter of the Mid-Jersey Chamber of Commerce, Kevin started a high school scholarship program and to this day continues to help Big Brothers-Big Sisters of Mercer County who recognized him as the Big Brother of the year in 2016.  Kevin contributes to the local community through the Pennington Business and Professionals Association, Economic Development Committee and the Hopewell Valley Municipal Alliance. Kevin prides himself as a “connector of people and businesses” as a Senior Financial Advisor and Managing Partner at Main Street Private Advisors in Pennington.

Ticket sales will support the Hopewell Valley YMCA which has served the community for decades through youth programs, community classes and a free teen center.  When the pandemic hit, the Y mobilized immediately to provide essential childcare, food distribution and virtual events while continuing to provide affordable before and after school care, summer camp, and Special Olympics.  Your participation helps us keep up the good work here in Hopewell Valley while enjoying a night of family fun, awe and laughter.
