United Way Campaign Kick-off is Sept. 12 at LANB


The United Way of Northern New Mexico (UWNNM) invites you to the 2013 Campaign kick-off.

The event will take place at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12 in the lobby of Los Alamos National Bank at 1200 Trinity Dr.

The Blue Window Bistro is sponsoring this year’s event by providing hors d’oeuvres. The 2013 Campaign co-chairs are Los Alamos Public Schools Superintendant Dr. Gene Schmidt and his wife Wendy.

UWNNM is a grant making organization dedicated to engaging human and financial resources to help meet the needs of our communities.

The campaign kick-off marks the beginning of the 2013 fundraising season and UWNNM encourages you to participate.

Gifts to the Community Action Fund enable UWNNM to provide grants to local organizations. This year, 24 organizations serving Los Alamos and Rio Arriba Counties received funding, plan on hearing from a few of them at this event.

A calendar of UWNNM Youth Team Events will also be available. The Youth Team has set a goal of $11,000 and plan to kick-off the season with a Taste the Sky event on Sept. 16.

A special thanks to Blue Window Bistro and Los Alamos National Bank for sponsoring the kick-off and to the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce for hosting this as one of its FAN Clubs.

Thank you also to the Cornerstone supporters, Los Alamos National Bank, Day & Zimmerman SOC Los Alamos, Rio Grande Sun, Del Norte Credit Union, Los Alamos Medical Center, ReMax of Los Alamos and Neptune and Company, Inc.

Their contributions help fund administrative costs to enable more donations to go directly to helping our community.
