Men's Event

United Way Men's Event

Hundreds of regional men come to this fun-filled night of games, food and raising awareness of United Way programs. We need volunteers to run our 12+ games (darts, poker, bags, hoops etc) as well as setup, teardown and more. We also need helpers to get silent auction items!
