“Two hundred people giving back something to help our community actually does make a big impact at the end of the day. they raise a significant amount of money that goes back to supporting work that we do in the community,” said Erin Matt, executive director and CEO of the United Way VGU.

Matt says all of the money raised goes back into the local community.
