The United Way of Bucks County is hosting their 65th Anniversary Breakfast & Awards on Friday, May 5, at Spring Mill Manor in Ivyland. The annual breakfast is one of UW Bucks’ largest events of the year, bringing together hundreds of donors, advocates, and volunteers to celebrate the ways in which UW Bucks and its supporters are changing lives together in the community. Tickets are on sale now for $35 (or $280 for a table of 10) at www.uwbucks.org/annualbreakfast and all proceeds benefit the Community Impact Fund.
The event includes breakfast and will feature awards, prizes, and surprises. UW Bucks will highlight the opportunities to get involved in 2017, including Bucks Knocks Out Hunger and Stuff the Bus. These UW Bucks signature programs bring partners together to make Bucks County a stronger, healthier community.
