United Way teaming up with community partners for ‘Giving Tuesday’

As Seen On WATE

“Giving Tuesday” is happening Nov. 27 and is a fundraising event that will see several community organizations team up with United Way to make it all possible.

United Way of Greater Knoxville is teaming up with community partners Boyd’s Jig & Reel and Regal Cinebarre for Giving Tuesday events.

Regal, a longtime partner to United Way, has pledged to match donations made on Giving Tuesday up to $100,000 – a huge opportunity for our Knoxville community. We have two special events lined up that day to raise money and celebrate the match.
