It was a record breaking year in fundraising for the United Way of Perth-Huron.
The UWPH announced Thursday it raised $1,451,961 in it's 2018-19 campaign.
The announcement took place at the United Way's "Spirit of the Community" celebration in Stratford.

In addition to the $1.45 million raised this year, the UWPH also has a 3-year fundraising goal of $5 million -- of which, this year was the first.
