United Way expecting weekend campaign bump

SD&G – The United Way of Cornwall SD&G could be getting a significant bump in its campaign this weekend.

The second annual Corus Cares Holiday Wine and Gourmet Tastings is Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at the Cornwall Civic Complex.

The event is sponsored by Stradwicks Flooring & More and Scotiabank is the corporate sponsor.

United Way Program and Event Coordinator Sherry Davis tells Cornwall Newswatch sales of the $75 tickets have been fast with fewer than 50 left as of Wednesday afternoon.

The event, which supports the United Way campaign and Corus Feeds Kids, raised over $20,000 last year for the UW.

As of this week, the campaign is 30 per cent of the way to its $707,070 goal.

The United Way supports 19 communities agencies in Cornwall and SD&G.
