United Way board member Becky Davis-Allen, Vice President at Bangor Savings Bank, is chairing the United Way’s Great Charity Auction this year. This year’s super-hero themed event features an amazing array of items including sports memorabilia, hand-crafted furniture, ski tickets, quilts, and vacation packages.

You can be a hero and help United Way help others by attending the super-hero themed Great Charity Auction on Saturday, November 9 in the Olsen Student Center at the University of Maine Farmington. The event begins at 4:30 pm with a bit of friendly competition at the silent auction and live auction preview. The live auction begins at 6:00 p.m. There will be a cash bar and heavy appetizers served throughout the evening, along with decadent desserts.

The Great Charity Auction is a signature fundraiser for United Way. Proceeds help fund programs that United Way supports including Meals on Wheels; Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services and Care and Share Food Closet.
