A portion of the proceeds from the sale go to Sedalia-Pettis County United Way in its 2012-13 quest to raise $575,000 during this yearís annual campaign. Linda Kirk, United Way executive director, said the annual Tyson sale is a welcome boon to the groupís fundraising efforts, bringing in around $5,000 last year. Kirk said 172 people, including some repeats, had stopped by the truck in the parking lot of Thompson Hills Shopping Center by early afternoon. The sale ran through 7 p.m. Friday.
