Sponsor United 4 Children’s Lighting the Way

 United 4 Children is thrilled to host our annual Lighting the Way event. Guests will enjoy an energy-filled cocktail hour with heavy hors d’oeuvres, open bar and fun activities celebrating our 55th year followed by an exciting program and live auction that will leave you feeling inspired by the difference we can make together!

Event sponsorship is the perfect way to support United 4 Children while spotlighting your business, engaging your employees, and entertaining clients. It is an opportunity to come together in community with child care providers, United 4 Children staff, and community members, like yourself, who make children a priority.

This year United 4 Children is celebrating our 55th anniversary. Your support allows us to build on our history and launch another half century of service. All funds raised support United 4 Children’s vision to ensure all children have the foundation to thrive.

Will you Partner 4 Our Future and join us in Lighting the Way for our region’s child care providers, children, and families?
