The event will be held for the second consecutive year at Peerless Road Church of God of Prophecy, and will feature well-known business magnate David Oreck. Oreck is the founder of Oreck Corporation, and is well known as an innovator in the production and sale of vacuum cleaners and other floor care and air care products.
Tickets for the kickoff luncheon are $15 each, and must be ordered prior to the event. No tickets will be available at the door.
The meeting will begin at noon, but food lines for the luncheon will open at 11:15 a.m., and with a large crowd expected, organizers suggest arriving early.
To order tickets, contact the United Way either by mail, by writing the United Way of Bradley County at P.O. Box 193, Cleveland, TN 37364-0193, by fax at 339-1110, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the United Way office at 479-2020 or 472-9876. Deadline for reservations is Aug. 20.
Along with the visit from Oreck, the kickoff luncheon will also feature results from Pacesetter and Challenger firms, both of which conduct early campaigns and report totals at that time. Challenger firms also pledge to attempt to raise 10 percent more in contributions than the previous year’s campaign.
The kickoff will be co-hosted by the Rotary Club of Cleveland and the Kiwanis Club of Cleveland, and will be considered a regular meeting for those organizations.
Peerless Road Church of God of Prophecy is located at the intersection of Peerless Road and Raider Drive.
