Lubbock Area United Way Campaign Chair Jon Stephens has announced the leadership team for the 2017 Annual Campaign. Stephens and 11 Vice Chairs will work together to recruit the more than 400 other volunteers needed to assist in the community-wide fundraising effort.

"We have a big job ahead of us, but together I know we will raise more money than ever to ensure the continued funding of all United Way programs,” said Stephens.
The 2017 Annual Campaign will officially launch at the Campaign Kick-Off Luncheon on August 31, 11:30 AM, at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center. The Campaign goal will be announced at this time and a live auction will be held for a Lexus Champions for Charities Golf Package, which includes entry for two at the 2017 Lexus Champions for Charity National Championship held at Pebble Beach Golf Links, The Links at Spanish Bay, and Spyglass Hill Golf Course.
