United Way 

The United Way of eastern Maine celebrated its 2006 campaign finale at Darlings in Bangor Wednesday. The car dealership was one of several area businesses whom were honored for their generous donations to the United Way.

During the campaign, folks could donate money each week to be eligible for prizes. Those winners were announced at Wednesday’s ceremony.

The United Way of eastern Maine says it surpassed its fundraising goal for 2006, bringing in 2.6 million dollars, or enough to help about 40-thousand local families.
