Pelican Preserve Passport Day to Benefit United Way.

What a fun all day event! Pelican Preserve held their first annual United Way Day. This year's theme was United Way Passport Day. Fun events were held throughout the day, starting bright and early with a 5K to benefit United Way. 83 people signed up for the Run/Walk event. They got their passport stamped and then participated the rest of the events throughout the day to fill up their passport. At the end of the day there were 3 gift baskets donated by various companies and people that were raffled off to the participants. Passport Day raised a final total of $3,704. Pelican Preserve has a campaign goal of $41,000 this year. They are currently at 85% of that with a YTD total of $35,189.

Thank you all so much!!
