Power of the Purse

What an amazing evening for Women United! On Friday, May 6, 2022, over 300 women gathered at the Schnormeier Event Center to enjoy great BBQ, ice cream from Round Hill Dairy, donate money to local Women United causes, bid on purses and enjoy an amazing show made possible by local men, willing to put themselves on the stage to raise money for women and children in Knox County! It was a new venue, which provided some challenges, but the members of Women United and the United Way Board worked together to set up, tear down, run the raffle, Bag Lady Boulevard stations and organized the   models and waiters. All of the hard work paid off as $120,000 was raised to fund programs supporting women and children in Knox County. Halle is currently updating our Women United Grant to be shared with the public once we receive the check from Jagger Auctioneering.
