A Home Run for United Way

We have been having a lot of fun with our “Hit One Out of the Park” fundraising campaign. First of all, BB&T readily agreed to be the Team Captain (thank you Bryan Thomas), and The Daily Progress and NewsRadio1070 WINA readily agreed to join our team as media partners.

We recorded a fun radio PSA and created quarter page ads with donation coupons for The Daily Progress. The good folks there also asked us for a color, full page ad that they ran several times. In addition, we created a direct mail piece asking folks to join our team and help us Hit One Out of the Park for the United Way and our community.

What has been most fun is opening the mail each day during this campaign and seeing the singles ($10), doubles ($20) and so on pouring in. There have been many Grand Slams ($100) and MVP donations (name your amount). We don’t have a final total yet (and hope they continue to come in for quite a while), but look for our Thank You ad listing the donors through June 4 that will run in The Daily Progress on June 13.

Thank you to everyone who has Stepped Up to the Plate to help us help those in need in our community.
