At the annual Tilbury Steak BBQ Friday night, 2015 Campaign Co-Chairs Kelly Bayda and Aimee June gave an update on the progress of United Way of Chatham-Kent’s fundraising campaign.

“Volunteers have been working hard making contacts in our community, asking current, past and first time contributors for their support” said Kelly Bayda. “At this point we have raised $478,602 of our $2,015,000 goal.”

“Many of the large workplace campaigns are just beginning. ‘L’il Red’s’ will be arriving in mailboxes this week. Kelly and I are confident that with the help of our great team of volunteers, we will be able to reach our goal” said Aimee June.

The next Public Report Night will be held in Wallaceburg on November 12, 2015.
