Melinda Mitchell, the United Way's Resource Development Associate in Williams Lake definitely thinks 'outside the box'. When she decided to organize a fundraiser for the United Way's local Community Fund, she asked herself what the community might really like to participate in. The end result is a fun evening out, aptly named 'Wined up to Give'.
"Folks are invited to come out to the Laughing Loon Pub for an evening of wine, food, and fun," says Melinda. "It is for a great cause."
The United Way's Community Fund is a pool of donations that draws on the combined strength of donors like you to strengthen individuals, families and communities by supporting services that improve people's lives in the Cariboo. "The Community Fund helps in the short term by meeting immediate needs—helping individuals when they need it most," Melinda says with obvious pride.
