THANK YOU TO OUR COMMUNITY FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
Over 250 individuals joined us in celebration at the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox on February 2, 2017 for OVATION. This was a community celebration held to honor and award individuals and companies for their outstanding contributions to the United Way campaign and to reveal to the community the financial impact created for our community.
