HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Several hundred people gathered for the United Way of Southeast Mississippi's annual meeting and thank you banquet Thursday at the Hattiesburg Country Club.

"It's the time when we get together to thank our donors, our volunteers, our advocates," said Tracie Fowler, president of the United Way of Southeast Mississippi. "Kind of reveal our dollars raised for the year, give out a few awards for some of our folks that have really gone above and beyond this year."

Fowler said the sponsors that really made this happen today were regions bank and Hattiesburg clinic.

"Also, we have our agency partners here, we have volunteers who are here, we have just a whole plethora of people who are passionate about the United Way and are here to support us," Fowler said.

Fowler said the sponsors that really made the event happen were Regions Bank and the Hattiesburg Clinic. Because of them, none of the money donated was used for this event.
