Brock United Way goal reached

From The Brock News

It wasn’t a wide berth, but it was enough for Kevin Lawr - the Brock community raised $112,710.46 for United Way this year.

That was about $700 more than the goal, said Lawr, co-chair of Brock’s campaign benefiting the United Way of St. Catharines and District.

“I’d like to thank the Brock community for pulling together and achieving the goal,” Lawr said. “I’m thankful the giving spirit came through in the end.”

The official campaign ran for six weeks, starting Oct. 18 and ending Nov. 26. But donations continued until the end of the year. The first event of the campaign was the annual Souper Star Lunch on Oct. 20, when the goal of $112,000 was announced. Other events included a Halloween office decorating competition and a volleyball tournament.

The goal increases a little every year, Lawr said. He wasn’t sure the target would be met this year because of the economic climate and competing fundraisers.

“But we snuck it out at the end,” he said. “That’s what we always hope to do.”
