2017 Campaign Kickoff: Epic Lip-Sync Battle Surpasses Hype
Over the course of the evening, as the battle raged on, one thing became clear — this was no ordinary fundraiser, and these people came to get down! United Way's 2017 Campaign Kickoff was truly epic, with nine teams showcasing their talents and skills, all in pursuit of the coveted Golden Hairbrush Award. And when the dust had settled, YWCA's Persimmon's Child was the last team standing.
We are so glad you could all join us to kickoff our Campaign season. And the key word here is kickoff; it was a fantastic event, but we need your help to continue the momentum. To support the valuable work being done in our community, visit and/or send a friend to our website.
