The United Way of Greater Duluth raised $2,064,000 during its 2011-12 campaign — ahead of goal and ahead of last year, agency officials announced Tuesday.
The campaign results were unveiled during the agency’s annual campaign celebration attended by more than 350 people at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center.
The amount raised was up 2.5 percent from the 2010-11 total and $50,000 more than the goal set for this year, officials announced.
