River Cities United Way was among those non-profits - displaying the new Volunteer Portal, which bridges the gap in a similar fashion to the Volunteer Expo but online, available 24 x 7 x 365. Robert Starkey, Director of Marketing at River Cities United Way shared the benefits of the site.

Attendees of the event were provided a bingo card with the names of each of the participating agencies.  Upon vistiting each booth, the agency would sign-off their spot on the bingo card.  Once the card was complete, the card could be entered into a drawing for one of the prizes provided by a participating agency.
