United Way of Cascade County Once Again Breaks Record

Posted: Updated:

The United Way of Cascade County is certainly not settling when it comes to fundraising this year.  With the announcement for this year's big goal coming tonight, the group that has a big impact on our community is hoping to hit a high target.

The group has already announced a record total for the fifth consecutive year, totaling more than $1.1 million.  The bulls eye for this evening's event is a huge increase from last year's campaign and the staff at the organization is excited for the outcome.

Funds from the campaign will go to a variety of local projects including Graduation MAtters, which has decreased the dropout rate in Great Falls by 50% over the past three years.

UPDATE: The United Way of Cascade County was about twelve thousand dollars short of their goal at the end of business yesterday, but through some last minute fundraising, they passed their goal of $1.2 million by this evening.
