Michele Bieber of McDonald, Ohio was named the winner. Bieber, a member of General
Motors UAW Local 1112, is a first time donor to United Way of Trumbull County. When asked why she chose to give to United Way of Trumbull County, Bieber said, “It was time. I have been fortunate and I knew it was time to give back.” Not in need of a new car, Bieber took the cash option. Her plans include using some of the prize to “pay it forward.” Of the event, United Way of Trumbull County President Ginny Pasha said, “We are grateful to all of our donors who believe in the work being done in Trumbull County by our United Way. With many thanks to Greenwood Chevrolet, we have the opportunity to provide incentives and create excitement for donors. We are thrilled that one of our Trumbull County donors is the winner!”
