The United Way team in Madison County has wrapped up their campaign and came in just dollars under their starting goal of $110,000.
Mark Buescher, the organization’s chair and Megan Picht, United Way’s campaign associate from Tallahassee, welcomed team members to the Madison County Community Bank, where they served volunteers and business representatives breakfast and handed out awards of appreciation for their work and dedication that helped make the campaign “a success.”
Bronze, Silver and Gold plaques along with President’s and Chairman’s Awards were given to Madison County businesses who were able to raise or donate funds anywhere from $1,000 up to $49,999, but heartfelt thanks was also sent to all companies, regardless of amount, who invested their time and money towards the United Way campaign. Bronze plaques were awarded to Birdsong Peanuts, Duke Energy, Greenville Timber Corporation, Madison County Clerk’s Office, Madison County Government, Madison County Property Appraiser and Madison Dental Associates. Silver Medals went to Corporate Graphics International and Tri-County Electric Cooperative. Johnson & Johnson earned a Gold Medal and the President’s Award went to Madison County Community Bank and Madison County Schools. The Chairman award was presented to only one company in Madison, Nestlé Waters.
Picht, recognizing exceptional volunteers for this past campaign, gave two special awards. The first award went to Leigh Barfield, Madison’s County Property Appraiser, earning an Outstanding Neighboring County New Campaign award, and the second award going to Cathy Bass, for being the County Volunteer of the Year.
The final announcement was the campaign total, announced by Beuscher, who received applause, as he disclosed the total amount raised for the community and service agencies of Madison County.
