In March, the UWFC held its Annual Luncheon & Awards Ceremony, the first step in recognizing and thanking our community partners who helped to make this year's campaign a $1.2 million success!

This year’s Annual Campaign theme, “the hero inside,” truly applied to each and every person in attendance.  As EJ Newby, President of the United Way of Florence County noted, “everyone deserves a cape!.”    While we did not give out capes, many local companies were recognized for their fundraising achievements.  See the full list here.      

Also recognized were those company and community partners that helped make this year’s campaign a success through in-kind donations and consistent support.  To see the recipients of the 2010 Community Service Awards, click here.   

Special thanks were also sent to our local media agencies for their consistent coverage of both our projects and the projects of our partnering agencies.     

Our Annual Campaign benefits 19 local agencies who rely on it for programmatic and organizational funding – for some, we provide as much as 20% of their annual budgets and nearly all of their marketing and community awareness efforts.  At the Annual Luncheon & Awards Ceremony, Wendy Bird, Vice President of Campaigns, was happy to announce the awards for those companies and volunteer campaign leaders who went above and beyond in their "hero" duties during the 2010 Campaign.  See those awards here.

We would like to say a special thank you to the sponsors of our Annual Luncheon & Awards Ceremony:

South Carolina Bank & Trust
First Bank
Crown Beverages, Inc.
Pepsi-Cola of Florence
BRAVO! Event & Party Rental
Stifel Nicolaus & Company, Inc.

Through all of our projects, the Annual Campaign, included, we are happy to partner with 19 local agencies and many more community partners in a unified effort to make lasting impact in our Florence community.  Thank you for your continued support in our efforts!
