The Dartmouth United Way committee is reminding supporters that if they make their pledge now, they will not only be eligible for the next prize drawing but they can help push the campaign thermometer past the halfway mark of $160,000.
The winners of last week’s raffle drawing are Elizabeth Teisberg, a professor at the Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science, who received a $50 PINE gift card, and Laura Braunstein from research and instruction services at Baker-Berry Library, who won two day-passes to Whaleback Mountain.
There are four more drawings left before the grand-prize winners are picked on Jan. 9. The next drawing is Nov. 14, and everyone who pledges is eligible for the drawings. The grand prize raffle is open to everyone who pledges, including the winners from earlier drawings.
This week, as the campaign hit the 40 percent mark on the way to this year’s $320,000 goal, Co-Chair Gail Gentes says it is also important to remember the difference that giving to the United Way can make in the community.
“One of our goals for the campaign this year is to increase the participation rate and to attract more new donors to the United Way,” she says. “We want everyone to know the tremendous good that results from a donation to the United Way.”
