Magnetation Gift Pushes United Way Toward Goal

With the end of its annual campaign in sight, United Way of 1000 Lakes recently received a $2,000 gift from Magnetation to put toward their 2013 campaign. To date the United Way has raised 92 percent of its annual goal of $305,000.


Matt Lehtinen (far left) and Joe Broking (far right) of Magnetation, express their support to United Way and presented the check to United Way board members, Wendy Uzelac, RE/MAX Thousand Lakes; and Guy Clairmont, Guy Clairmont Financial.
