United Way kicks off 2013-14 fundraising campaign with soul

By Ashley M. Casey

Campaign Cabinet members of the United Way of Greater Oswego County donned fedoras, suits and sunglasses in a creative effort to present the organization’s 2014 fundraising goal of $800,000 at the 2014 Campaign Kick-off Breakfast.

Rob Rolfe, recently named the sole chair of the Campaign Cabinet, explained they were inspired by the 1980 movie “The Blues Brothers,” in which Jake and Elwood Blues reunite their band to raise money for the orphanage in which they grew up.

“We put the band back together for each and every one of you,” Rolfe said at the breakfast, held Sept. 11 at the American Foundry in Oswego.
