Did you know that 75% of United Ways are led by women?   As women take a larger role in higher education, business, and government, we celebrate them and their achievements. We also celebrate all the amazing women in our lives, the grandmothers, mothers, sisters, friends, and aunts who have helped mentor and shape generations of men and women. We appreciate you all!    

Sponsorship Opportunities Available!
Your sponsorship dollars will help us raise multiples of that amount!   The goal is to raise $10,000 to support the needs of families facing financial hardship in Kane and Kendall Counties. These proceeds will be used to fund programs that support local families facing financial hardship.   We will sell a maximum of 100 tickets for this inaugural event in May. Raffle items will include several high-end purses and jewelry items.   What’s in it for you? As a sponsor, your company will receive recognition in our promotional materials, social media posts, the Golden Raffle Tickets, and the press release.   Your involvement in this event will demonstrate your company’s philanthropic goals and serve as an example to other businesses in our community. ​ To learn more about what’s in it for you, contact
