Northampton County Celebrates the United Way of the Eastern Shore! Northampton event will benefit the 2016 United Way Campaign.
On Friday, November 18, 2016 from 5:00-6:30pm, Northampton County residents will gather at the newly renovated Sunset Beach Resort to celebrate a number of local charities active in the County that rely on the United Way for annual support.
“Many of my friends in Northampton County are just not aware that United Way supported agencies are providing so many essential services in their own communities. United Way of the Eastern Shore provides a critical safety net for their elderly, their young people and neighbors in crisis”, said one of the Co-Chairs, Deborah Christie. “We are hosting this celebration to get the word out. So many of the essential services we count on in this County can only be here because of support they get from our local United Way.”
Guests will enjoy delightful food and drink while they meet agency executives and volunteer board members from the Randy Custis Memorial Park, home to our Little Leagues and other sports programs for Northampton youth and new Roots that teach children farm to market skills in the Town of Cape Charles. Representatives from our Boys & Girls Clubs will also talk about the many after school programs they provide to help young students succeed and leaders from the Eastern Shore Coalition Against Domestic Violence will discuss their family shelter and other new programs that now operate in Northampton County to help families dealing with domestic violence and abuse.
Co-Chairs for the United Way Celebration are Mr. Bill Payne who serves as Board Chair for Boys & Girls Clubs, Elizabeth Dodd, Executive Director of the Northampton County Chamber of Commerce and Mr. Todd Burbage, President of Blue Water Development and owner of Sunset Beach Resort.
Admission is $20.00 per person and $30.00 per couple. For reservations or for more information please call Deborah Christie at (757) 709-9483.
