United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore recently hosted the 11th annual Holiday Ball at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort. Over 300 guests attended the 2013 sold out event and a record breaking $ 60,000 was raised to benefit United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore.
Holiday Ball Committee co-chairs Kevin and Diane Hayes shared, “The 2013 United Way Holiday Ball was a great event! Raising over $60,000 provides resources for our local United Way to continue helping the critical health, financial stability and educational needs of our Eastern Shore community. The Holiday Ball was a testament to the overwhelming support and generosity shown by our local community. We look forward to an even more successful 2014 Holiday Ball”.
As the largest non-governmental source of funding for 56 critical programs in Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset and Dorchester Counties, United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore helps Eastern Shore residents achieve educational success, income stability and good health. In 2013, United Way impacted local lives by providing over $1 million to community programs and helped over 70,000 individuals.
