QUINCY (WGEM) -- A Quincy summer staple held its big fundraiser Friday night to raise money for this upcoming year.
The annual Jackson Lincoln-Swimming Complex Ben Bumbry Memorial Banquet took place in the Quincy University Hall of Fame Room.
Held in honor of the late Mr. Ben Bumbry, organizers said it also celebrated the community, individuals, and businesses who support the pool.
Jackson Lincoln Pool Board President Cecil Weathers said the pool's mission is an important one considering what it means to the community.
"Now that we're back open, we've seen the children come back and it's a glorious feeling, to give the youth of Quincy someplace to go where its safe, fun and they can enjoy themselves," Weather said.
Weathers said if you're looking to donate, you can mail a check to them at P.O. BOX 176 Quincy, IL 62306
