“We are pleased to host this event in Culver to thank our friends and supporters there,” said United Way Director Linda Yoder.
Yoder noted that hors d’oeuvres for the Chamber Way event will be provided by Lakehouse Grille, a new partner in Dine Out for United Way. A portion of the proceeds at Lakehouse Grille from October 21-27 (Monday through Sunday) will support the campaign. Eighteen restaurants in Marshall County are participating in the 2013 Dine Out for United Way program; for a complete list visit www.marshallcountyuw.org.
Mystic Hills Golf Club has been a continuous participant in the Golf for United Way program; golfers can still buy a card for $50 and play one round of golf at each of six courses in Marshall County.
‘The Power of We’ is this year’s campaign theme and symbolizes the spirit of United Way’s mission. “We have the power to strengthen our neighborhoods, bolster the health of our communities and change the lives of those who walk by us every day,” said Lance Overmyer, one of this year’s campaign chairs. Lance is one of a team of five volunteers who are chairing this year’s campaign and leading the way to carry that message to hundreds of businesses across Marshall County. Bill Davis (Bremen), Dave Goebel (Plymouth), Scott Graybill (Bremen), John Oliver III (Plymouth) and Lance Overmyer (Culver) have been dubbed the ‘Fab Five’ by those working with them on the campaign. The goal this year is $500,000.
