Today, United Fund of Atmore Board members will put the final touches on this year's kickoff event scheduled for Thursday evening.
The event, which will be held in conjunction with the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce's Business After Hours, is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. and will be held at Creek Indian Enterprises located in the old Trinsic building at 100 Brookwood Drive.
State treasurer Kay Ivey will be the guest speaker and she will touch on the importance of community support.
Numerous local businesses have donated items for guests to bid on during the silent auction. Also up for grabs will be a pair of Atlanta Braves baseball tickets, two-round trip plane tickets, fight tickets and much more.
The United Fund of Atmore was formed in 1955 and supported 20 agencies in 2008. Bartz believes that everyone in Atmore benefits from United Fund due to the diversity of agencies supported.
