Women Who Care

Women United's Women Who Care event brings together over 100 women to make a tangible difference for the community in real-time! Attendees nominate, pitch for, and vote for one local nonprofit to receive $10,000 in grant funding that night.

Gateway to golf

They say deals are made on the golf course and Women United wanted to make sure that the women in our community were a part of them! Gateway to Golf offers golf beginners lessons as part of Get Golf Ready, while experienced foursomes can hone their skills as part of the 9-Hole Scramble.

Please note: Due to COVID-19, Women United is evaluating available options to host Gateway to Golf in 2022. Stay tuned for updates.
