BUT, it's a year in the making and looks a little like this...
- First, 12 companies chose to be Diamond and Media sponsors allowing United Way to kick off work for the year.
- Then, KIA AUTOSPORT Pensacola donated a KIA SOUL for one lucky donor as an extra bonus for choosing to give.
There were many reasons to celebrate at the 2017 Community Investment and Campaign Celebration on June 15. The celebration started with a video featuring Kia Autosport of Pensacola awarding a new KIA SOUL to Joseph Leonard.

Have you ever wanted to be able to give away a million dollars to support a worthy cause?
Even if you agree with Charles Dickens that “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another,” you may not have a bank account that allows you to give freely. If you have always wanted to give away a million dollars, then volunteering with United Way might be exactly what you need.
