University of Virginia employees have something to celebrate. They set a new $1 million record in the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC), an annual charity drive of the employees of the commonwealth of Virginia.
More than 100 people packed into Garrett Hall for the special event to honor the volunteers who helped with the campaign.
"To see that we've hit such a high bar, in terms of giving, does two things: it reflects the work and the efforts of all the volunteers and a lot of the contributions go back to the community as well as into the state," said Ed Howell, CEO of UVA Medical Center.
UVA employees' contributions make up about 27 percent of the statewide total.
