United Appeal Pay It Forward
The family oriented event will take place at Kiser's Barbeque at Eclipse, 11309 Jackson Drive in The Plains, off Johnson Road. Featured will be a barbeque buffet dinner including vegetarian options, as well as live music from Remember Then. Suggested donation is $15.
“We wanted to offer a casual event to the public to raise awareness of United Appeal, Athens County said Janet Long, United Appeal board president. Pay It Forward represents the idea that a small gift goes a long way when it's given to United Appeal for Athens County. We hope friends old and new will enjoy spending time with us on September 27.”
Led by Peoples Bank and Mr. & Mrs. Terence Francis, local community leaders and businesses have provided sponsorship for the event, representing a broad range of our county,” added Long. Their continued support of United Appeal illustrates the grassroots nature of our fundraising and friend raising here in Athens County.”
Offering an alternative dinner venue during OHIO's Parents Weekend, the fundraising event features no speeches, awards or other formal agenda, just a fun evening to eat with friends and see where your gifts are used to help others. Representatives from United Appeal and other local agencies will be there if you want to learn more about how your gift is used in the community.
