2/22/22. A day presumed to be filled with good fortune. This year, a bit of folklore turned out to be true for the United Way of Cayuga County.
On February 14, Sydney Radka, VP of Client Services at FingerLakes1.com, reached out to the United Way of Cayuga County after receiving a newsletter containing their annual campaign update. She shared with Julisa Stone, United Way Marketing and Campaign Coordinator, that the FingerLakes1.com team had seen that the 2021-22 Campaign was incredibly close to reaching its goal, and that they wanted to participate and support it.
No amount was disclosed in that initial email, Sydney simply asked if the United Way of Cayuga County Team could visit their offices.
Upon entering the FingerLakes1.com offices, Julisa and Kathryn Dennis, United Way Executive Director were welcomed by the staff and presented with a check for $10,000 designated to a cause near and dear to the team: Programs supporting the communities’ children. “Our company is only as strong as the communities we serve. We’re fortunate to be able to support the vital work the United Way of Cayuga County does every day to help those who need it most, especially children,” said FingerLakes1.com, Inc. President Jim Sinicropi.
The United Way of Cayuga County Annual Campaign runs until March 4th and this $10,000 gift gets them that much closer to their goal of $800,000. “Every campaign is a huge success. The energy and momentum of the 2021-22 Campaign truly sets it apart from previous years as we work with individuals, organizations, and businesses to Rebuild Cayuga Together,” Julisa added.
