Geoffrey Canada coming to town

On Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012, at 7:30 a.m., Geoffrey Canada, founder & CEO of Harlem Children’s Zone and a nationally-known education figure, is headlining United Way of Greater Toledo’s Campaign Kickoff presented by Marshall & Melhorn, LLC.

The event is open to the public and will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Perrysburg. Admission is free and consists of breakfast, followed by Canada’s keynote addressing school-community partnerships and how they lead to success for children, families, and neighborhoods.

“We are so fortunate to have Mr. Canada joining us for our campaign kickoff breakfast,” said Jane Moore, United Way of Greater Toledo’s interim president & CEO. “He has had remarkable results in the 100-block Harlem Children’s Zone and we are excited to hear more about how we could incorporate some of those ideas here to support our schools and improve outcomes for kids and their families.”

After Canada’s address, United Way will share the latest about their work and also announce the campaign goal for the 2012 United Way Campaign. Additionally, attendees will observe a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. in commemoration of September 11.

Seating is limited for this exciting event. Please register at unitedwaytoledo.org/kickoff or by calling 419-254-4667.
