The Weirton United Way is a nonprofit organization serving our community since 1936. It is the City of Weirton's principal charity and supports 13 member agencies that provide services including basic needs - food, shelter and clothing - to many families and individuals in our community.
The Weirton United Way Campaign, which kicked off in September, is still striving to meet its $260,000 goal. The last special event of the campaign is the 2014 Big Game Eve Tailgate Party from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Feb. 1 at the Serbian American Cultural Center.
This is the third year for the event and the crowds have come to expect food, beverages, music and fun. There is sure to be interest in the awarding of this year's grand prize: $1,500 in gasoline. In addition, there will be a Chinese auction. Fans are encouraged to wear their favorite NFL team apparel.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door and available by calling (304) 748-7213 or at First Choice America Offices in Weirton. Those attending must be 21 or older.
The United Way is a proud member of the Chamber of Commerce and thanks them for the services provided to the local businesses of our community.
