Live United Celebration - Cancelled

This year’s Celebration originally postponed to June 3 has now been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and safety guidelines, such as continued social distancing and avoiding large group gatherings. With health as one of the focus areas for United Way, it was determined that it would not be prudent to host an event convening more than 300 people in early June. United Way will celebrate our community’s philanthropy and collective impact in other creative ways. Be sure to keep watching our enewsletter, website and social media channels for news and recognition of our generous corporate partners, individual donors and deserving award recipients.
