Door County YMCA receives $1M gift for Sturgeon Bay upgrades

Walking approximately 13,000 miles at the Door County YMCA Sturgeon Bay Program Center is part of the reason why you will see a transformed facility in the coming months.


The Door County YMCA announced Thursday that Denise and Dave Bunning, through their Sunshine Charitable Foundation, donated $1 million to the Heart of the Community Capital Campaign. Dave’s dad Jim was a mainstay at the Sturgeon Bay Program Center track, walking 44 laps several times a week for 23 years. His mom Barb also remained active, spending countless hours taking exercise classes at the YMCA.


A portion of the gift is being used to fund the $500,000 community challenge the Door County YMCA announced earlier this summer. The organization is trying to raise the final $650,000 needed to make the project a reality. The Door County YMCA will break ground on the over $9 million facility upgrade on September 13th.
