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.
