UNITED WAY AWARDED NEW CAR
TO MARIE GALLISON OF CORINNA

The United Way of Eastern Maine along with Darling’s Auto Group presented Marie Gallison of Corinna with a brand new car on Monday, February 12th. Gallison was chosen randomly as the winner amongst all donors of at least $5/week to the United Way of Eastern Maine’s Annual Campaign. She was awarded with the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta S at the Bangor dealership. Gallison works at the Charlotte White Center in Dover-Foxcroft providing overnight support for folks with cognitive and development disabilities. She has been a donor to United Way for nearly 10 years.
“The incentive prizes go a long way toward helping our annual campaign which this year will reach $1.87 million,” said Shirar Patterson, President & CEO of the United Way of Eastern Maine. “The incredible generosity of Darling’s Auto Group to donate a car to this cause is simply amazing. This gift, along with those donated by Emera Maine, L.L. Bean, and Camden National Bank gives so many donors yet another reason to help their community.”

“It is our pleasure to give this car away for such a worthwhile cause,” said Gary Greene, Sales Manager at Darling’s Ford VW Audi in Bangor. “The United Way does so much for this region thanks to the generosity of so many donors. Being able to help in this way is gratifying beyond words.”
Other prize winners were announced last week at the campaign finale. Rachel Bailey of the Bangor Water District won $3,000 toward the purchase and installation of a heat pump from Emera Maine; Autumn King of Darlings won a $500 gift card from L.L. Bean, and Shirley Billings of EMMC won a $400 Visa gift card from Camden National Bank.
As part of the United Way of Eastern Maine’s annual campaign, large incentive prizes are awarded. Winners are drawn from pools of donors meeting certain criteria such as a minimum annual donation or an increase in year-over-year individual donations.
