The group responsible for this event, the Young Professionals for United Way, is a group of 21- to 40-year-olds who are all interested in giving back to the community and making it a better place to live and work. They are a group of young professionals, who work at local businesses and schools, who offer fund raising, volunteering, and networking opportunities to other people their age. If you are interested in joining this group, please call Emily at (860) 582-9559.

This is the fourth year the group will be holding this event.
