United Way of Greater Lorain County’s 2012 Campaign Kickoff
SHEFFIELD VILLAGE, OH: United Way of Greater Lorain County (UWGLC) will kick off its 2012 Campaign season with a fun-filled tailgate-themed event. The kickoff event will take place on Friday, August 24th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Mike Bass Ford in Sheffield Village. The event will be free and open to the public; however, registration is required and can be completed at www.uwloraincounty.org/events/uwglc2012kickoff.
The kick off will present several exciting opportunities including a corn-hole tournament, fun activities and great prizes. The event will also include the 2012 Battle of the Wings competition. This competition will give event participants a chance to taste wings from restaurants across Lorain County. Participants will then cast their vote on which restaurant will be crowned the “2012 Battle of the Wings Champion”.
An additional component to this year’s kickoff event includes a collaborative effort with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lorain County called “Stuff the Bus.” The “Stuff the Bus” initiative is designed to provide school supplies to children in need. The kickoff event will feature a school bus where event participants are asked to donate various school supplies that will be packaged and delivered to schools throughout Lorain County.
