United Way Campaign Meets Goal

By Neil Doyle

The United Way of Livingston County is celebrating the generosity of the people of Livingston County.

United Way of Livingston County Executive Director Deb Howard tells WJEZ’s Todd Wineburner that the campaign goal was about $80 short until a generous donation came through the door, putting the campaign over the top.

Howard added that the need is always present, however, so there are several fundraiser events coming up, including a trivia night.

“Our trivia night was such a hit last time we way over sold it and had people standing to play. We have limited it to 25 teams this time around and you better call soon to sign up as spaces are filling up fast,” said Howard.

The trivia night is set for May 10 at Pub 13 from 6-8 p.m. Other fundraising events include a celebration for meeting the most recent campaign goal and the United Way will be taking care of concessions at Pontiac’s first cruise-in later this month.
