TERRE HAUTE — The final push is on to meet a $1.86 million fundraising goal.

A steady flow of people have been contributing tips and donations to the

seventh-annual United Day for United Way event in the Wabash Valley.

With their sights set on the $20,000 mark, local celebrities continue until

7 p.m. pumping gas, washing car windows and sacking groceries at Baesler¹s

Market. About 92 percent of the goal ‹ or $1,710,909 ‹ has been raised up to

today for the nonprofit organization.

³We¹d like to get everybody to stop by on their way home from work,² said

United Way executive director Troy Fears.

United Days donation locations are plentiful. Visit www.uwwv.org for a

complete list of donation sites as well as a list of restaurants

participating in the Dine United event, also part of today¹s fund raising.
