United Way award – Third in four years

CHARLOTTE, N.C.– The United Way of Central Carolinas and its Alexis de Tocqueville Society have won top honors for their fundraising in last fall’s annual campaign.

The two groups received the Fleur-de-Lis award from the United Way of America for raising more than $7 million and $5 million, respectively – the most non-matched dollars raised by any United Way or its Tocqueville Society serving a population ranging from 500,000 to 1 million people.

Graham Denton, executive vice president for Bank of America, chairs the local Tocqueville Society, which includes individuals and foundations contributing $10,000 or more to the United Way.

The United Way now has won the award three times in the last four years.
