As many of you know, a young boy passed away several days after suffering a brain aneurysm while attending an event at Camp Clark earlier this summer. The Hackett family, despite their unimaginable loss, has been working with the Brain Aneurysm Foundation to raise money for aneurysm research and education that may someday prevent another family from experiencing such a tragedy.

On September 15th, the organization will hold a fundraiser at Tavern on the Wharf in Plymouth. Old Colony YMCA is proud to co-sponsor the event and a few of our staff members will also be in attendance. To learn more about the event, register, or make a contribution, please click here.


About the 3rd Annual Brain Aneurysm Foundation After Hours Event:

September is Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month, and on Wednesday September 15, 2021, Brain Aneurysm Survivor and Plymouth Town Moderator F. Steven Triffletti will host the third annual Brain Aneurysm Awareness After Hours at the Tavern on the Wharf rear patio from 4-7pm.

The purpose of the outdoor event is to raise awareness of brain aneurysms that occur for one in fifty people. This year, all proceeds will benefit the Brain Aneurysm Foundation Jonathan Michael Hackett Chair of Research established to honor Johnny Hackett, who passed away on July 24, 2021 at age 3 following a small bleed in the back of his brain stem consistent with an aneurysm.

The After Hours is open to the public for anyone who is fully COVID vaccinated. Attendees will enjoy refreshments and music provided the GinaMark band. For further information contact, or visit


We respectfully ask that you join us in supporting this incredibly worthy cause, and that you keep the Hackett family in your thoughts and prayers. Full link to event details:
