Bruce Williams heads up United Way fundraising campaign

Victoria TV personality has accepted campaign chair position

A familiar face will be the frontman for the United Way of  Greater Victoria over the next year.

Bruce Williams, a CTV personality, has accepted the role of fundraising campaign chair for the United Way.

Williams got involved with the United Way more than 20 years ago in Ontario.

After relocating to Vancouver Island in 2001, he began working closely with the United Way, investing his time, being a donor and sharing his expertise.

“I invest my time and money with the United Way because I have seen how it has a positive impact on this community,” Williams said.

“I’m proud to lead this team. I promise we will grow United Way support and further enhance positive outcomes for the thousands of people who benefit from our hard work.”

The United Way’s 2015 fundraising campaign begins this fall.
