Gearing up: 1st Report Luncheon

We couldn't do all that we do without YOU!

Almost halfway there!

Our first Report Luncheon on Thursday, October 6th filled the tables & appetites of everyone attending. Division Chairs reported to Campaign Chairman Drew Rowe an enthusiastic 48% raised so far in this year’s campaign.

48% equals $648,734.00 of the 1.35 million dollar goal, folks 🥳

We loved having Linda Raines & Smokey Oats, past Joe Q. Dougherty Volunteers of the Year, present to fill those thermometers 🌡 as our campaign plotters, too! With 42 days left in the campaign, reach out to us to schedule loaned executive presentations at your business: 423-581-8601 or

Quick on the draw, past Joe Q. Dougherty Volunteer of the Year, Smokey Oats and United Way of Hamblen County Executive Director Gary Matthews stand ready to fill their thermometer.
Linda Raines, past Joe Q. Dougherty Volunteer of the Year, was happy to help out with plotting the campaign’s progress so far.
From Spanish & English classes to arts & cultural classes and a large Hispanic Heritage festival, Director Betsy Hurst told everyone about all the wonderful outreach and community building they are instrumental in providing at Hola Lakeway.
