Special Metals tree lighting raffle proceeds go to United Way
HUNTINGTON - As part of the annual Special Metals tree lighting ceremony, the company also raffles of dozens of gift cards and flat screen televisions donated for the community event.
All of the dollars raised through the raffle is then donated to United Way of the River Cities as part of its end-of-year workplace campaign. This year’s event, held Nov. 29, led to a donation of $3,950 toward the 2018 campaign, said Resource Development Director Bill Rosenberger.
“You don’t realize how generous Special Metals and its employees are until you attend the tree-lighting ceremony,” Rosenberger said. “Santa, free hot chocolate, the raffles - it really makes you thankful to have Special Metals located right here in our community.”
