Thanking and honoring United Way’s donors and volunteers
2017 United Way California Capital Region Impact Awards
We had an exciting 2017 as we built upon the Square One Project that launched in 2016 with the goal to significantly increase the number of kids who graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond. Our goals could not be achieved without the help of our generous supporters, donors, and volunteers.
United Way honored these individuals and companies who are making a lasting impact in our communities at our recent donor celebration.
On November 30, more than 30 volunteers gathered at United Way to stuff stockings and wrap gifts for children in Sacramento County Child Protective Services and foster youth in United Way’s program. The holiday wrap party was a wonderful way to kick off the holidays and unite women and young professionals around the needs of local foster youth during the holiday season.
SOLD OUT 16th Annual Women United Luncheon was a BIG Success!
Members and guests raised over $75,000 in support of local foster youth
Last week, 450 Women United members and guests raised more than $75,000 at the 16th annual luncheon! The money raised will be used to support United Way’s foster youth program. Guests celebrated the amazing work that makes a difference in the lives of local foster youth and enjoyed hearing from special guest, Olympic gold medalist, Simone Biles. It was a real treat to see the teens in United programs walk with confidence down the runway during the fashion show.
