Women United

Women United

August 8, 2019

Tuesday the office staff here had the great opportunity to attend the annual fun fundraiser for United Way of Lewis County. “Power of the Purse” celebrated it’s 14th year as a major fundraiser for United Way. The theme was a “A Day at the Derby” and as you can see by the pictures it was quite the event.

Other Community members “Dressed for Races”

This fundraiser provides an opportunity each year for local women to come together to raise funds for a good cause. This year the event was sold out at 350 participants. Many were dressed for the them and wore extravagant hats and dresses. This provided for a festive atmosphere and one where fundraising for the cause was the priority.

The event was MC’d by Deanna Davis, an accomplished professional speaker and entertainer. She blended her special sense of humor with the serious goal of the evening to raise funds to reduce poverty in Lewis County.

Their pitch is that “By investing in United Way of Lewis County’s vital poverty work, you are changing lives every day. YOU are an important piece of the puzzle in creating a healthy, vibrant Lewis County.”

It certainly was a fun evening learning more about United Way’s work and contributing to a good cause. If you want to learn more about what United Way does in our community click HERE.

The Women United theme comes from a group forming locally at United Way. Women United is another way for local women to connect on the topic of positively impacting the lives of women and children in poverty. This newly forming group is hosting a “meet and greet” Wednesday, September 18th at 6 pm at the Chehalis Theater. They advertise this as an opportunity to learn more about Women United and connect with other women in the area. Click HERE to go to their website for more information.
