United Way campaign kicks off

September 6, 2016

IUPUI has long been committed to community engagement, and one of the biggest events that honors that commitment is the IUPUI United Way campaign. The campaign kicks off with the IUPUI United Way luncheon on Sept. 13. "Celebrity" servers will be waiting tables for attendees. Lunch is just $7, and your servers will be striving to earn more in tips to go toward the campaign.

Other highlights include a series of agency spotlights where you can learn more about the variety of agencies making a difference in the lives of Central Indiana residents. IUPUI's Day of Caring will be Oct. 29, when you can participate in hands-on help for community organizations. And the United Way Bash and Silent Auction is Oct. 31. Come dressed up and get some great deals!
