The United Way of the Big Bend will be able to distribute more money to its agencies than it ever has before. The nonprofit announced Wednesday the community raised $7,798,830 at its 2006 campaign Celebration held at the University Center Club, according to a release. That’s a seven percent increase from 2005.

“This was just a banner year for the United Way,” said spokeswoman Heather Mitchell.
