When it comes to supporting nonprofits and philanthropic organizations, it’s good to see city leaders walking the walk. In the park board’s and city of Galveston’s case, they will be dunking the dunk to help support Galveston’s United Way.

From 2 to 4 p.m. Friday, park board CEO Kelly de Schaun and Deputy City Manager Dan Buckley will poise themselves in a dunk tank to raise money for the United Way and its 21 island partner agencies. The Galveston Island Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Michael Woody and the city of Galveston’s Cesar Garcia will emcee the event.

Mary Beth Bassett is the public relations director for the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Park Board of Trustees.
