PAULDING – United Way of Paulding County (UWPC) held a fundraiser Oct. 26 at the Paulding Eagles Lodge.
“The United Way Special Events Committee and board members sponsored the fourth United Way Halloween Party. United Way raised $3,589, which will go towards the 2013-2014 campaign,” said Pam Miller, vice president.
The day began with United Way members assisting the Lion’s Club with the Halloween parade. Following costume judging, many went to the Paulding Eagles where Sheriff Jason Landers, Captain Dyson, Deputy Dyson, Deputy Mendez, and Deputy Deitrick were set up with the fingerprinting ID kits for kids.
A very special thank you was given to the Eagles Lodge in Paulding for a cash donation and for its continuing support.
UWPC also extended a special thanks to Dennis Price, Anna Lee Adams, Ebel’s Butcher Shop, Country Times Market, Baughman Tile, and S&P Miller Excavating for all the donated items for the raffle.
The winner of the 50/50 raffle was Don E. Adams. Other winners included: a Thanksgiving dinner basket donated by S&P Miller Excavating, Ruben Gill; a gas card donated by Country Times Market, Jessica Acosta; and Brandy Highwarden won a Baughman Tile jacket.
