“We had a great turnout,” said Salem Taylor, executive director of United Way. “The downtown businesses were a tremendous help, hosting really fun stops with great drinks and snacks. The Boardroom was alive with lights, music, food and vendors which filled the building and everyone enjoyed being in such an incredible space.”

Joy Almond, director of Albemarle Downtown Development Corporation, spoke highly of the event.

“I’m most appreciative that the Stanly County United Way puts on a fun event that also supports our downtown businesses; I look forward to it each year,” Almond said.
