It’s not every year that supporters of Metro United Way gather gala-style, but the centennial celebration called for some pomp and circumstance and an ambitious goal to raise $1 billion dollars with an effective capital campaign chaired by Matt Thornton. Cocktails, dinner and dancing was the ideal way to commemorate generations of improving lives in our community. Cheers to the next 100 years!
