Big Green Raises $5,000 for Dartmouth United Way!

Dartmouth fans were not only treated to a stunning, come-from behind 22-21 victory over UNH at the home opener on Sept. 17, they were able to give the 2016 Dartmouth United Way campaign an early boost.

As part of an annual Dartmouth Football tradition, one dollar out of every adult ticket sold was donated to the Dartmouth United Way campaign, which kicks off this year on Oct. 11.

“I’m pleased to report that we had an excellent turnout for our United Way home opener,” says Bob Ceplikas ’78, deputy director of athletics. “We sold 4,330 adult tickets to Saturday night’s UNH game, and we are happy to round up to $5,000 for the Dartmouth Athletics contribution to the Granite United Way.”

Total attendance at the game was 8,296 including discounted youth tickets and Dartmouth students, who enter for free.

At halftime, United Way volunteer Stacey Chiocchio, community citizenship manager for Hypertherm, was presented with a game ball by Harry Sheehy A’55, director of athletics and recreation and Katie Kobe of Granite United Way. Also there to celebrate United Way volunteers were Dartmouth President Phil Hanlon ’77, Dartmouth United Way co-chair Gail Gentes, Granite United Way’s Rob Shultz, and United Way board member Kevin Kober.

The team also showed a United Way promotional video with Gail Gentes and Phil Hanlon on the stadium video board. Athletics plans to show United Way promotional videos several times during the season, says Ceplikas.

The 2016 Dartmouth United Way campaign kicks-off on Oct. 11, and Dartmouth faculty and staff will receive United Way giving forms soon after.

Let's Draw Attention to Good Work

The Tuck School's Creative Services Team, Tuck Executive Director of Infrastructure and Operations Steve Lubrano, and Upper Valley cartoonist and publisher Matt Young, a former Granite United Way volunteer of the year, got together to illustrate just how much good you can do by donating to the United Way. What are you waiting for?
