Charity to honor year’s community service achievements
The United Way of Norman is hosting the Victory Celebration to celebrate its accomplishments in 2011.
The event will take place from 11:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 2 at Embassy Suites in Norman. Food will be provided at the celebration.
Part of the celebration is to announce how much the United Way of Norman has raised this year. Currently, it has achieved 78 percent of its fundraising goal, said Jed Dembowski, United Way’s vice president of marketing and communications.
“We are really optimistic about reaching 100 percent by December,” Dembowski said. “The deadline of a lot of companies to give money is this week. So, we are expecting more to come.”
Dembowski added that OU is the largest donor to the United Way of Norman, followed by Norman Regional Hospital.
Students and volunteers who are interested can RSVP by calling 405-329-2025.
