United Way kicks off campaign Brady Bunch style

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - United Way of Southeast Mississippi kicked off its 2012-2012 campaign with their annual luncheon in Hattiesburg Thursday.

The theme was The Brady Bunch this year and, as fundraisers embarking on a hopeful six month campaign watched from tables, United Way staff put on a short retro television-themed skit.

The event is meant to be a simultaneous thank you, kick-off celebration and announcement of the $503,000 already raised by local companies chosen as Pacesetter organizations that started fundraising this summer.
