The Niagara/Orleans Labor Councils executive board recently made a check presentation to the United Way of Greater Niagara's board of directors. For the past six years, the Niagara/Orleans Labor Council, all its union affiliates, sponsors, Ransomville Speedway and Friends of Labor have teamed up to help make the "Labor's Night at the Races" fundraising event a success.

This year, a check was presented to United Way of Greater Niagara in the amount of $11,300, to bring the grand total to $54,000. These dollars will help the United Way of Greater Niagara's campaign that invests in programs that focus on education, income and health in Niagara County.
