When Citicorp's United Way committee members decided to get a sports figure to show up for autographs Tuesday, they had no idea they were going to get Errict Rhett, the Baltimore Raven running back who sealed the team's victory Sunday with a 46-yard run.

"We really got lucky," said Phil Kelly, manager of external affairs at Citicorp. "And since it's primary election day, there will probably be a lot of kids here to meet Rhett."

The committee thought football was a perfect theme for the company's "kickoff" of the 1998 Citicorp employee and corporate campaign.

"The committee has gotten game tickets and football memorabilia too for the kickoff," Kelly said.

Last year, the employee and corporate contributions to the United Way of Washington County totaled $330,000, Kelly said.
