A world of whimsy and social good

Glamorous philanthropists came from far and wide to travel down the rabbit hole into a world of whimsy at the 2017 United Way Red Carpet Gala at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. This year's Oscar viewing party celebrated the wonderment of Alice in Wonderland and featured musical entertainment by The Endless Summer Band, psychic readings, a silent auction and caricature drawings. Following a three-course dinner, guests viewed the 89th Academy Awards telecast on the big screen for one of the most memorable Oscars moments in history. 

But the best part? Raising $96,000 for United Way’s education priority!
