United Way sets goal for annual business drive
At the kickoff meeting Wednesday of the Business and Professional Committee for the Town of Palm Beach United Way, Chairman Stephen Hall Jr. announced the 2018-2019 campaign goal of $325,000.
The committee secures corporate gifts and employee donations from individuals and businesses in Palm Beach, South Palm Beach and Manalapan. Last year’s campaign raised $304,115.
