Oktoberfest a spirited success

The Greenwich United Way’s fourth annual “Oktoberfest” fund-raiser took place Sept. 28 at the Loading Dock in Stamford, kicking off the organization’s 2012-2013 fund-raising campaign with hundreds of supporters, sponsors and guests.

The event, presented by Greenwich Hospital, featured German-inspired foods prepared by On the Marc, regional beers and wines, traditional German and contemporary music, friendly competition in the game room, dancing and a silent auction. United Way President Stuart Adelberg led a round of cheers for the work of an extraordinary group of Oktoberfest volunteers led by Steph Cowie, who was the board’s liaison to the fund-raiser. Mr. Adelberg also attributed Oktoberfest’s success to the generosity of event sponsors including local corporations, businesses and individuals.

 

The Greenwich United Way is committed to targeting needs, mobilizing communities, and changing lives. In addition to its work identifying and meeting health and human service needs, it is the largest non-governmental source of funding for local health and human service programs. Giving to the annual community-wide fund-raising campaign is the most effective and efficient way to support critically needed local services that strengthen children and families, support seniors, foster self-sufficiency, and assist individuals in crisis.
