Lynchburg, VA - The United Way hosted their annual Super-Bowl-A-Thon this weekend.
It's one of the organization's main fundraisers. Many area businesses put together teams and competed to win prizes.
The grand prize is a Super Bowl Party-- the winners will get to watch the super bowl in a hotel room, with a rented TV and food catered from Buffalo Wild Wings.
The United Way says fundraisers like this go a long way to help their many projects.
"The United Way supports a lot of different agencies that cover needs for Central Virginia residents. We cover all of Central Virginia. A lot of different categories and places that we support," said George Hurt who is this year's Campaign Chairman.
With help from fundraisers like the Bowl-a-thon, the United Way has raised nearly three-million-dollars since starting its yearly Live United Campaign last fall.
