United Way of Central Kentucky is inching closer to its record-setting goal for the 2011 fundraising campaign.
The agency has surpassed last year’s total, collecting $947,650 as of Thursday afternoon, according to Executive Director Christopher Wilborn. The 2010 campaign finished around $942,000.
Wilborn said the total is more than 92 percent of the $1,025,000 the campaign hopes to collect by the close of its campaign at the end of February. If successful, it would shatter the previous record of $1,013,779 collected in 2007.
