That was the message at the end of the United Way of Central Missouri's 2011 campaign and victory breakfast Wednesday at Farm Bureau.

Campaign co-chairs Ann Littlefield and John Kehoe announced the organization has reached its goal with a projected fundraising total of $1,643,390. Donations are still coming in, Littlefield noted.

As part of a Hollywood awards party theme, "Uni's" were presented to the seven divisions of donors.

• The Professional Division, which is primarily run as a mail-solicitation program and includes donations from local lawyers, accountants, doctors and other professionals, raised $47.245.
