Atlanta radio station personalities Jim Ash and Jeff Maxwell were on hand at the United Way tailgate party Saturday evening.  They began a remote feed from the party about an hour before the festivities began. 

Throughout the evening they interviewed a number of people about the organization and the work it does in Logan County.

This year the United Way needs to raise $110,000 to meet local needs. The organization supports a number of local organizations, including the senior programs at Community Action and the Oasis and the child care programs at Christian Child Care, just to name a very few.

Snyder talks about the value of the work of the Logan County United Way.

There were dozens and dozens of silent auction items for shoppers to choose from.


Marla Blair, the United Way office administrator, said she and board members visited businesses throughout Logan County, seeking donations for the auctions, and the response to their requests was overwhelming.

It's time to make some popcorn!







Coleen Moore of Christian Child Care mingled with guests before speaking about her program.

Tailgate food was plentiful; brats, hot dogs, chili, buffalo chicken, nachos and potato salad were on the menu.
