Still not convinced? Here’s the press release:
Two Brothers Tavern and the United Way of Addison County have partnered to offer ‘Community Squared’ a fundraising event that will benefit all of the non-profit organizations funded by the United Way. Bringing together local food, musicians and community members, the goal of the event is to raise $5,000 to support the UWAC general fund and its twenty-nine critical health, education and human service organizations. Funds will be raised through sponsorship, admission and 50/50 raffle tickets sales.
As the United Way of Addison County nears the end of it’s 2013-2014 campaign, the goal is still within reach. Campaign funds provide community members with access to much needed food, shelter, health care, safe havens, quality educational opportunities and so much more. “Community Squared is about raising the power of the community for change,” says Nancy Luke, Development and Marketing Manager of the United Way. “Attending Community Squared is a great opportunity to make an impact — for community, by community and help us to reach our goal.”
Community Squared is generously sponsored by Farrell Distributing (featuring Drop In Brewing Beer), Reinhart Foods, Backspin Renewables, Newton Electrical & Refrigeration, Shelburne Vineyard, Bristol Beverage & Redemption, Olivia’s Croutons and the Addison Independent.
