The second annual Cool Pool Parties fundraising event to benefit the YMCA is this Saturday, July 28, from 7 to 10 p.m.

The idea is simple and yet ingenious. Guests are invited to choose one of three private Vineyard properties to relax poolside and enjoy a party matched to a particular theme.

Batch on Hatch is hosted by Kathy and Jim Gidwitz and takes place in Vineyard Haven. This party features music by Andy Suzuki and food by Kitchen Porch catering.

Take Me Out to Menemsha id hosted by Julie Flanders and Sarah and Bob Nixon. Members of the MV Sharks will be hanging out by this pool located in the Menemsha Hills.

Olympics on the Waterfront will be held at Herring Creek Farm in Edgartown. Guests can dance to DJ beats while celebrating the Olympics on the big screen.

Last years inaugural pool party event raised $40,000 for the YMCA.
