United Way/High River Partnership – HEROES Week, October 15-19, 2018

High River, AB: The United Way/High River Partnership is excited to announce the dates of our upcoming fundraiser – HEROES WEEK! Save the dates – October 15-19, 2018. Heroes Week is a fundraising initiative to engage citizens in High River along with raising funds for local social profit organizations.

Like in past years we invite local businesses and organizations to take place in the 4th Annual Workplace Heroes Challenge and the Heroes Lunch (Oct. 19th at Mr. Mike’s) to wrap things up on Friday.

We invite you as local media to please assist us in getting the message out to the community and also we’d love you to participate in this year’s activities.
