United Way Campaign Climbs to 91 Percent of the
Way campaign has raised $2,345,259 to date — 91
percent of the combined goal of $2,568,000 for all Johns
Hopkins entities — and the participation rate is up
to 24 percent and climbing.
Help keep the momentum going by sending in your pledge
form or attending one of the remaining special events such
as the Chili Cook-Off, set for 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on
Tuesday, Nov. 29, in Homewood's Glass Pavilion. Lunch
(chili, cornbread, dessert and drink) is $5; all proceeds
benefit the United Way of Central Maryland. For more
information, call 410-516-6060.
Thanks from United Way!
