From November 18th to 21st, United Way of Calgary and Area held an internal campaign in order to raise funds for the organization. WineCollective is always pleased to donate to United Way, and so we joined in on the fundraiser along with another 29 organizations.
During the course of the week, the United Way office fought for the highest bids on their favourite donations. The silent auction, which became quite competitive, earned $2700!
United Way of Calgary and Area is the largest non-governmental funder of human and social service programs in our city. In partnership with businesses, social service agencies, government and individuals, United Way works to build sustainable solutions to complex social issues and improve the lives of all Calgarians. We are proud to support United Way with their continuous fundraisers across the country. For this donation, the winner received several bottles of wine, along with a Tannic membership!
“Thank you again for your support of our event and, more importantly, the United Way itself. Without the generosity of people like you and organizations like yours, we wouldn’t be able to make the impact in the community that we do.”
– Luke Prudence, Campaign Associate.
We encourage our members to get involved and donate to United Way! Even more, you can visit their website for information on how to start your own office campaign, or stop by one of their upcoming events! We hope to continue to take part in their events that aim to better our city and communities.
