2022 Campaign Kickoff Luncheon

United Way of Central Illinois is hosting its annual Campaign Kickoff. This year, the event will look a little different. The new location and new time reflect the new opportunities that are ahead of us as we also take time to reflect on our past 100 years in the Springfield area.


Thursday, September 8, 2022


Route 66 Motorheads Bar and Grill

600 Toronto Road, Springfield, IL 62711


11am – 1pm

Seats are $20 per person and include lunch. Seating will be first come, first serve. (There will be no table assignments this year.) So get there early to save your group’s table(s) or meet others in the community who have a passion for United Way!

At this year’s kickoff event, we’ll show local caseworkers our appreciation by giving them a self care gift basket. Case workers advise, advocate, coordinate, educate, manage, prepare and support those accessing services. That’s just the tip of the iceberg some days. The impact of their work touches the lives of many in our community.

Event sponsorships will fund this Case Worker care package activity at the kickoff. For each sponsorship of $45, items for one care package will be purchased and ready for assembly at the event.

If you or your organization sponsored one care package for each person attending the event, we could deliver more than 200 care packages to Case Workers at organizations throughout our community.
