United Way Appeal & Oct. 4 Kick-Off Picnic Announcement

United Way Appeal & Oct. 4 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 Tuesday, Oct. 4, 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 Atrium, during the picnic and during lunch time throughout the month of October, until and at the JAG Tailgate, for a chance to win one of three items: GoPro HERO4, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 (32GB), or a $300 Best Buy Gift Card!

The pledge form pdf link has been included at the end of 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. 7.

All proceeds from the ticket sales, as well as all picnic donations, will go to the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula. The winning raffle tickets will be announced at the JAG Oktoberfest on Oct. 27.

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.
