Burke County United Way presents Toast of the Town 2018!


TOAST OF THE TOWN is THE signature community FUNdraising experience where friends and community gather to support and invest in the children of Burke County.

PROCEEDS from Toast of the Town will support the Burke County United Way, 4 Burke Kids-Embracing the Future Fund. Grants will be awarded through a vetted allocation process to Burke County organizations that provide support and services to children in our community.

FUNdraising experience: $60 ticket price assists in providing the evening’s dining and entertainment experience, but then the true FUNdraising begins! At each venue, there will be a brief presentation regarding the needs of children in our community. Guests will be provided an opportunity to purchase a raffle ticket to win an outstanding venue prize or to make a tax-deductible donation to support the 4 Burke Kids-Embracing the Future Fund.
