On Thursday, the United Way of Portage County launched its 2022 fundraising drive. According to a press release from the United Way, the organization’s 2018 fundraising campaign will center on ensuring access to quality education, quality healthcare, and financial stability.
Malamania, a vintage Afro-Latin trio, performed as part of the CREATE Portage District Levitt Amp Series. Ben Nusz and Cindy Weber, who will be focusing on education, Deb Furgason and Fred Eichmiller, who will be focusing on health, and Kim Angell and Craig Aittama, who will be focusing on financial stability, were honored as the United Way’s 2022 co-chair team at the concert.
The event’s host was emcee Ben Nusz. The “United Way Dance” he and his wife, Chamomile, taught the audience will be displayed on United Way’s many online profiles. The United Way collected a “substantial amount” of school supplies for Project Fresh Start, and many spectators went home with free T-shirts.
