United Way campaign begins today

You're invited to the Live United 2012-2013 Community Campaign Kickoff for Valley United Way

The kick-off is Thursday, Sept. 13, at the Valley United Way office and Center Stage Theatre, 54 Grove Street.

Valley United Way will be bringing together the Valley community as it raises the curtain on an old-time tradition, the annual United Way campaign. Each year, Valley United Way works with corporations, small businesses and individuals to raise funds to support 24 local agencies that serve our community. These agencies help youth succeed, strengthen families, and help people in crisis in the towns of Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton.

Showtime is from 11:30 to 1:15 p.m.

To attend, RSVP by visiting valleyunitedway.org or call 203-926-9478. Everyone who registers online will be entered into a special drawing to receive two tickets to a Center Stage production. The event is made possible by Prudential Annuities.
