17th Annual United Way Women United Luncheon & Silent Auction

It's that time of year again! The 17th Annual United Way Women United Luncheon will be held on November 2nd at the Delta by Marriott in Fargo

For years, the Women United Leadership Team has worked to bring women in the community together for one common purpose: to help give local children THE VERY BEST START in school and in life. This year's event will benefit United Way's work in BOLD Goal 2: Helping Prepare Children to Succeed. All the proceeds from the silent auction and luncheon event will help United Way invest LOCALLY to support children and students in the areas of early education, early literacy, quality child care, Imagination Library Program, and student success. Programs like the School Supply Drive, Backpack Program, Check and Connect program, reading and tutoring programs, Kindergarten readiness programs, and many other program initiatives have been made possible by the support and hard work of the strong women in our community.  

This year we have the pleasure of welcoming Ashely Rhodes-Courter as our keynote speaker. Ashley Rhodes-Courter is a New York Times and International Bestselling Author of Three Little Words and Three More Words and is the quintessential American success story.  Born in 1985 to a single teen mother, by the age of 3, she was in Florida’s foster care system where she spent almost ten years being shuffled between 14 homes before being adopted at the age of 12. Despite her ordeal, she excelled in school because she believed that, “my education was the one thing nobody could take from me.” Ashley went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Social Work and after fostering more than 20 children, Ashley has a unique perspective on parenting, life, resilience, philanthropy, and the power of love.
