United Way of the Midlands (UWM) will kick off its annual fundraising campaign beginning at 4 p.m. on Thursday, August 23, 2018, at The Capitol District, 1022 Capitol Avenue. The free community celebration will feature food from Capitol District restaurants and bars, a confetti release, photo booth, yard games and a special performance by The Shenanigans, starring Timothy Burke on guitar and vocals.

Contributions made by organizations and individuals throughout the campaign will empower UWM to meet the needs of our community’s most vulnerable neighbors. The theme for the event is community:

At United Way of the Midlands, we believe we are stronger together. Through your generosity and genuine care for our community, millions of dollars are raised to help our most vulnerable neighbors stand strong and work toward independence. We are that kind of town.
