Over $1500 raised during Miracle Minute Fundraisers
United Way of Clare and Gladwin Counties is thankful to everyone who helped kick off this year’s campaign season by giving during our Miracle Minute fundraisers during recent football games at our local high schools
On Sept. 14, Farwell Eagles fans raised around $280, while Harrison schools donated $100 from their 50/50 held the same night.
Gladwin High School’s Key Club raised over $102 during the Miracle Minute held at their Sept. 28 game against Roscommon.
The final two Miracle Minute fundraisers were held Oct. 12 in Beaverton and Clare. Around $265 was raised in Clare, with an additional $130 donated from their 50/50 raffle; and $634.88 was raised at Beaverton High School during the Battle for Butch. That means more than $1000 was raised that night in one minute between the two fundraiser events.
In total, more than $1500 was raised in Clare and Gladwin Counties during these Miracle Minute fundraisers. United Way of Clare and Gladwin Counties is so appreciative of the amazing campaign “kick off,” and thanks everyone who chose to Live United at these events!
"We are so grateful for full participation this year during our football Miracle Minutes,” said United Way of Clare and Gladwin Counties Executive Director Sarah Block. “It was a great success! We love working with our local schools, and we’re looking forward to next year."
