Small Business Blitz Success!

You are here



The rain didn't stop our amazing volunteers from visiting Defiance and Hicksville Small businesses on November 6th and 7th for our annual Small Business Blitz. Thanks to our volunteers, and the support of our small businesses, we were able to raise $4,555 for our 2014 United Way Campaign! Small businesses that donated $50 or more were entered into a contest to win 30 free radio spots! Congratulations to our winner this year, Bruce Guilford Real Estate & Auctioneering!!!


Thank you Defiance County small businesses that donated this year!
