According to Meghan Bias, Executive Director for the United Way of Big Spring and Howard County, the 2019 Campaign goal is to raise $250,000 for their 15 partnering agencies and this year they’ve created a new event to help them reach their goal.
A United Way Benefit Concert will be held at the Train Car, in downtown Big Spring, on Saturday evening, September 8th. Local talented artists J.R. McNutt and Eddie Austin will be performing, along with the band Insufficient Funds from the Midland.
There is no cover to get in to the Train Car on September 8th. There will also be food, donated and prepared by NuStar, that will be sold to benefit the United Way, plus donations will be accepted. The event begins with food at 6 PM at the Train Car and the live music will begin at 7 PM.
The local organization is a charitable cornerstone in our community with the ability to reach many people. They provide financial support and advocacy for their health and human service Partner Agencies in Howard County, while being a platform for encouraging philanthropy and economic development in the community.
