Dancing event raised money, but also formed new friendships

To the Editor,

I want to compliment Sandra Oliver, the Robeson County United Way board of directors, Frances Miller and all the other volunteers on a wonderful 2012 United Way of Robeson County Dancing With The Stars event. They did a lot more than raise sizable money for the children of Robeson County with this event; they pulled people from all across the county working in varied professions together in a common cause that entertained and built long-lasting relationships.

As one of the dancers, I now know at least 50 people much better that I did before the experience and they will remain friends and valued contacts for years.

My highest compliments on this project and your efforts to assist our young people improve their reading skills. It was and will be a wonderful investment in the county’s future.
