2009 North Rock County United Way kickoff breakfast
WCLO's Steve Benton reports on the United Way kickoff breakfast in Janesville
ROCK COUNTY The 2009 North Rock County United Way Campaign gets off the ground with a breakfast at Kandu Industries in Janesville Wednesday morning.
Co-Chairs, John Pearse and Phoebe Tobias, accepted a check from the Pacesetter committee for $202,000. That represents 15% of this year's goal of $1,350,000.
Volunteers heard a testimonial from former drug addict, David Presendofer. He was helped back to his feet through a program at the Janesville Salvation Army, which is supported by the United Way.
Pearse says they'll be counting on smaller donations from a larger number of people to reach this year's goal. He says they still have the $201,000 raised from last year's Tahoe raffle in the bank. Pearse says it will be used to fill any gaps in the campaign.
