Record Breaking Campaign Celebrated

United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties celebrated a record breaking campaign year with their Under the Sea themed Victory Celebration on February 18, 2016 at Waterfront Place Hotel. Over 200 guests attended the evening dinner and enjoyed a night of recognition and appreciation. The campaign raised over $1,570,250 to help support our local community.

WVU Medicine took the top honor with the “Best of the Best” Award. WVU Medicine had their largest campaign ever, raising over $200,000. Mylan Pharmaceuticals had a very successful year and walked away with several awards for their record breaking year, as well. Mylan raised over $375,000.

KeyLogic Systems, JS Walker Associates, and West Virginia University were all recognized for their outstanding support. The West Virginia Army National Guard received the “Best Community Impact Partner” award for their work with United Way.

Anthony Condia, Vice President of Marketing at WVU Medicine, received the Advocate of the Year award. Margaret Toothman of Mylan and Julie Lattanzi of HealthWorks received the Outstanding Employee Coordinator awards.

During the dinner, awards were also presented for the Combined Federal Campaign, with NIOSH taking home the Campaign Cornerstone and NETL receiving the Best of the Best.

Attendees thanked Craig Behr for their tremendous leadership of the campaign and presented him with the Timothy P. Saab Community Leader Award.

Behr thanked the crowd during his last official duty as campaign chair and passed the torch to the 2017 campaign chair, Chad Prather, Morgantown Community President of Huntington Banks.
