Chowing Down for Charity; City Supports United Way

Tom Morton, Townsquare Media

Sgt. Scott Jones and his daughter Emily on Wednesday pulled up the nearest table, a police cruiser, to lunch on barbecue and support United Way of Natrona County.

“The proceeds of all this goes back to our community to help those organizations that we partner with all the time to benefit youth and families and those in need,” Jones said outside city hall.

“They’re here, in conjunction with the city, which is huge supporter of United Way, and we’re making money to help those folks and to have a good meal,” he said.

Anna Rosburg, marketing director for the city’s leisure services department, said city employees conduct silent auctions and bake sales to raise money for United Way.

Employees historically have raised $25,000 a year for United Way, which supports nonprofit organizations assisting with housing, community health, mental health, childhood development, family resources, in-home services, senior citizens, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, the Self Help Center, children’s legal services and other services.

Bringing in Bullwhip Catering on Wednesday for employees and anyone else is new, Rosburg said.

“We have not done this in past year, this is totally new, we’re kind of flying blind,” she said. “If you’re have to eat, you might as well eat for a good cause.”
