United Way fundraising campaign kicks off this Friday with breakfast

— “It gives you a sense of accomplishment to help out.”

The United Way of the Adirondack Region will host its annual campaign kick-off breakfast Friday, Sept. 16, as a way of getting people motivated about helping the organization. The event will be held at American Legion Post 20, 162 Quarry Road, beginning at 8 a.m. The cost to attend is $13 per person or $75 for a table of six.

During the breakfast, “pacesetters” — those who have already begun raising money for the 2011-12 fundraising campaign — will be announced.

“It’s a very fun event,” Morrow said of the breakfast.

The United Way will also benefit from an upcoming harvest dinner hosted by Knight of Columbus Council 4689, 1435 State Route 9. The buffet-style dinner will be held Saturday, Oct. 22, from 4 to 7 p.m. and cost $10 per person. All proceeds from that event will also benefit the local United Way.

Those interested in making a donation to the United Way of the Adirondack Region may send donations in care of the organization to 45 Tom Miller Road, Plattsburgh N.Y. 12901.
