The 2019 Annual Campaign Kickoff Luncheon on August 22nd marked the beginning of the campaign. This year's Campaign Chair Tony Lloyd with RE/MAX of Lubbock announced our 2019 goal of $5,888,669.
The keynote featured a conversation with Anna Babin, CEO of United Way of Greater Houston. Anna shared about Hurricane Harvey, the continued recovery efforts, and the impact United Ways across the globe make daily in their communities.
Tony asked the audience to consider why they support United Way and communities on the South Plains, challenging them to, “Ask yourself that question and carry it with you during the coming months. Share that why with the people you work with, with your friends, with your family … all of those whys out there in our community – we can work to answer those whys and give hope to more than 120,000 people across the South Plains.”
