July 1, 2014 - A new hotel developer hasn't even broken ground yet in Erie, but is already giving back to the community. Cobblestone Hotels made a $5,000 donation to the United Way of Erie County this morning. This is the first official gift to the United Way's 100th Annual Campaign.

The donation will be matched as part of Erie Insurance's $100,000 challenge.

United Way officials said to receive this donation from the company means a lot to the organization.

Because Erie Insurance is matching donations dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000 for this 100th Annual Campaign, Cobblestone Hotels' gift has essentially been doubled to $10,000.
