The United Way of Madison works hard each and every year to raise money for local and national charities in attempt to make the world a better place. While the money that they receive is given with that in mind, it does not hurt to thank those who have made the donation. To thank those who have donated $500 or more to the United Way, the UWBB hosts an appreciation event each year.
This year’s event took place at the Madison Senior Center on November 29. The theme for this year was sweet treats and the dining hall in the senior center was decorated accordingly. Large decorative candies were placed throughout the hall, and blue and yellow (the United Way’s identifying colors) decorations were placed sporadically in the hall.
The meal consisted of fondue, cookies, brownies, cupcakes, grapes, cheese, crackers and coffee. Everyone in attendance was sure to have a great time talking with the United Way team members and discussing the plans for the rest of this year and next year.
