United Way breakfast to launch We Are Possibility campaign

United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island (UWCNVI) will launch its 2015 We Are Possibility campaign on Thursday, Sept. 17 with a Kick Off Breakfast at Crown Isle Golf Club at 7 a.m.

Join other caring community members who attend the Kick Off Breakfast to learn more about United Way’s work in the community, network with friends and co-workers, and enjoy a hot buffet breakfast provided by Crown Isle Golf Club. There will also be inspiring speakers, a great door prize and a 50/50 draw.

“This is a great opportunity to get all of our generous donors and supporters in one room, to generate excitement for the campaign this year, and to celebrate our ‘We Are Possibility’ campaign,” says Signy Madden, executive director of UWCNVI. “Without the generosity of our donors, we wouldn’t be able to fund 18 programs in the Comox Valley.”

Tickets are $20, available online at uwcnvi.ca/campaign.

United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island (UWCNVI) has been at work for more than 57 years in our community. With the mission to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action, UWCNVI has invested in 56 organizations and 61 programs on Central Vancouver Island.
