November 26, 2015 – In support of the United Way Municipal Campaign, employees of the City of Thunder Bay want to encourage the community to attend the second annual Jeans & Jewels Christmas Party.

The event takes place on Friday, Dec. 4 at the Italian Cultural Centre and includes a family-style meal, music, dancing and great prizes. Tickets are $45 with all proceeds going to the United Way.

“The United Way provides financial support to 30 local agencies and 64 programs here in Thunder Bay,” said Norm Gale, Acting City Manager. “As Municipal Employees, it is our responsibility to step up and support the United Way in reaching their fundraising goal.
