The Merrill Area United Way is excited to welcome Leslie Blasing for our 75th Anniversary Summer fundraising event, August 7th, 12:30 to 4 pm at the Merrill Northwoods Veterans Post.


About this event

The Merrill Area United Way is adding a summer fund raising event for our exciting 75th anniversary year. MAUW has secured an incredible singer/ performer out of South Padre Island, LESLIE BLASING. She has an incredible following in the Texas area, and many Wisconsin and Midwest "snowbird" followers. She will put on a show you will remember, and dancing will certainly be available for all those who care to dance. In addition to Leslie, we have secured Bryce Thomaschefsky, an area favorite, to open the stage for her.

Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Thomaschefsky will perform from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and LESLIE BLASING will perform from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tickets are limited to 400 people. Click here for more information and Ticket Purchase. Food and beverage will be available.

Financial inequity is often seen as families struggle to elevate their financial circumstances. Several United Way funded agencies work hard to help these struggling families through tough times. The United Way raises funds which get disbursed to our 18 agencies that provide the needed service. The needs are immense. The United Way campaign runs until the first of November. Agencies help with services in our three impact areas: basic needs/income; health services; and education.

The donations come from individuals, families, retirees, employee campaigns and companies. The annual public appeal was just mailed to all households and businesses. Our response rate is typically less than 1%. Right, “way to low”. Can we count on you to do a little something this year? Every dollar helps and it all stays local. There are so many requests
through the mail, so United Way hopes you watch for ours.

United Way is driven to make a positive difference in the Merrill area. To donate send checks to Merrill Area United Way, at P. O. Box 813, Merrill 54452. Or donate through Pay Pal on this website. For further information email us at ; or call our part‐time office at 715‐536‐2016.
