  • Salute to Ralph Blundo

    September 26, 2019 - 5:00pm

    Thank you to all of the event sponsors and individuals who came out last night in support of Ralph Blundo and the New Castle Commmunity YMCA!

    Thursday, September 26  5:00 p.m.
    New Englander Banquet Center

    Join us as we honor Ralph Blundo with the Jack & Nancy Flannery Salute Award at our annual dinner event on Thursday, September 26, 2019. The event will be held at the New Englander Banquet Center with the reception to begin at 5:00 p.m., followed by dinner and program at 6:00 p.m.

    Tickets                                                               
    $75/person or $700/table of 10
    Tickets can be purchased begining August 12th at the downtown branch at 20 West Washington St, New Castle PA 16101.

    About the Award
    Jack & Nancy Flannery exemplified servant leadership, commitment to our community, and the YMCA’s core values. For those reasons, and more, the Y is pleased to honor their legacies with an annual award.  This award is presented to a person, or group of people, who embody the spirit of courage which is defined as “the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, and/or pain, in spite of fear, or the confidence to act in accordance with one’s beliefs and/or convictions.”   

    About the Recipient

    Ralph Blundo is the current assistant principal at New Castle Senior High School and has been the head varsity boys’ basketball coach since 2010.  Blundo has led the Red Hurricanes to six WPIAL championships, becoming the first coach in WPIAL history to win three consecutive titles, two different times. Additionally, Blundo led the team to an undefeated season in 2014 that culminated with a State Championship.

    More impressive than Blundo’s accomplishments on the court is the impact that he has had on the thousands of kids he has encountered. Blundo has dedicated himself to the young men and women of the District, encouraging and assisting them to reach their full potential, regardless of their background or circumstances.

    When Blundo learned that he was the recipient, he stated, “When I look at the list of people who have received this honor, and why each received it, it’s difficult for me to place myself in their category. The challenges that each of them have met, head on, are beyond comparison. That said, I am beyond honored and humbled to be chosen.” It is worth noting that in 1993 Ralph Blundo’s grandfather George Joseph received the Salute to Courage award. Mr. Joseph was the second honoree of a now 17 year and counting tradition.

    Sponsorship & Other Opportunities

    All proceeds from the event benefit the Y’s Annual Campaign, which provides life-changing programs and memberships to more than 1,000 youth, adults, older adults and families every year. The Y counts on the generosity of our members and partners to keep our doors open to all.
