United Way sets goal at $825,000

Local celebrities from Quinnipiac University helped the United Way of Milford kick off its annual fund-raising campaign Sept. 26 at Subway World Headquarters.

Brian Smith of Milford, host of WQUN’s The Brian Smith Afternoon Show, is the 2018 campaign chairman. The speaker was Tricia Fabbri, Quinnipiac University women’s basketball head coach.

Gary Johnson, president of the United Way of Milford, was the emcee of the event.

Smith said that Johnson asked him several months ago to be the campaign chairman, but he said “no” because he was too busy with his new job at WQUN. Smith said Johnson asked him to think over the offer, and then invited him to the United Way office to discuss the request.
