 At Friday night’s Great Bend High School football game, Benefit Management LLC presented a check for $1,670 to United Way of Central Kansas. This money was raised through its sponsorship of the Blackout T-Shirts that were designed by Great Bend High School student Ema Millard and Identifications. 

Denise Wilkens and Mike Minton with BML presented a check to UWCK Executive Director Gaila Demel during halftime. 

“UWCK is grateful for this amazing donation and the involvement of Benefit Management in our community and with United Way as a Workplace Campaign company and reliable sponsor for numerous events throughout the Campaign,” Demel said. “Thank you Denise and Mike, Benefit Management staff, and everyone who purchased a shirt to support the Great Bend Panthers and United Way of Central Kansas.”
