Robert Haines, Chief Financial Officer of K’NEX has accepted a mission of a lifetime by committing to be honored at the North Penn United Way’s Superheroes United for Kids fundraising event on May 3, 2013.

The event, which will take place at PineCrest Country Club, will feature a live dance band, cocktail-style dinner, open bar, super-silent auction and lots of superhero sized surprises. Over 300 community members are expected to join forces the night of the event to raise funds to support the North Penn United Way’s goal of having all North Penn and Indian Valley students succeed in school.
Robert Haines will be one of 20 superheroes honored during the evening. The superheroes hail from across the community, but all have at least one thing in common -- they are doing great work with, or for, children in our region.

“Community is one of our core values, so K’NEX works with local organizations that provide support to our community. I am humbled to have been recognized by the North Penn United Way,” said Haines
