Lunch Friday will benefit United Way

The Bureau County United Way kicked off its 2020 campaign on Monday with hopes of raising $107,000 by next spring. That goal amount is $2,000 more than last year’s goal, and new Bureau County United Way Executive Director Leslie Butler is confident the organization will reach it. The United Way’s first fundraiser event will be held Friday with Lunch in the Park in Princeton. To help set a positive tone on kickoff week, four area banks came together to be pacesetters of the campaign. Heartland Bank and Trust, Midland States Bank, Central Bank and First State Bank each donated $250 to underwrite the event. This means every dollar made Friday will go toward the campaign goal. The lunch event will be 11 a.m.-1 p.m. in Soldiers and Sailors Park.
