2015 United Way Campaign Appeal & Kick off Picnic Announcement

2015 United Way Campaign Appeal & Kick off Picnic Announcement


Giving season is upon us once again.  Please join me in supporting our communities by donating to the annual United Way of the Virginia Peninsula campaign.  Every contribution to the United Way, no matter the sum, provides an array of critical services and supplies to those in need within our community. After-school programs, affordable daycare, transportation for the elderly, hospice care, job training for the less fortunate and even food and shelter are just some of the benefits that result from your donations.

JLab's pledge campaign kicks off on Friday, Oct. 2, with our annual fundraiser picnic scheduled for 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.  Hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers, and assorted canned soda and chips will be available for $1 per item to raise money for the United Way and will be served by Lab senior management.  Once again, the food is being generously donated by our Quark Cafe contractor, Eurest.  Additional food and beverage items will be available for regular purchase in Quark Cafe.

We also will sell $1 raffle tickets, from a table in the CEBAF Center lobby, during the picnic and during lunch time throughout the month of October for a chance to win one of three items: an Apple Watch, Apple iPad Mini, or a Fitbit!

A pledge form has been attached to this message for your convenience.  Additional physical forms will be available at the front desks of the SSC, TED, MCC, and CEBAF Center.  All forms should be returned to Krystina Serafini, Mail Stop 12B, CEBAF Center Room B214 by Monday, Nov. 2. 

All proceeds from the ticket sales, as well as all picnic donations, will go to the United Way. The winning raffle tickets will be announced at the JAG Tailgate Party on Oct. 28.

Countless members of our community, along with many of our friends and family, have likely been assisted by United Way over the years.  Please join me, this year's fundraising chairman, in making this our most successful campaign yet for United Way.

Heartfelt thanks,
