A Community Effort
The Franklin County Area United Way hosts a number of events each year to help meet our fundraising goals.
Power of the Purse
Join us for a fun night of live and silent purse auctions. These events frequently feature designer handbags, wristlets, crossbodies, totes, and wallets from Kate Spade, Dooney & Bourke, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, and others.
The Power of the Purse events are hosted in five communities throughout Franklin County. You may recognize some of our models and bartenders. Everyone from local bankers to firefighters to your coworkers help bring this event life.
Be sure to bring your singles for tips, and be ready to have fun!
Annual Golf Tournament
One of our most popular fundraisers, the Franklin County Area United Way Golf Tournament is an annual tradition held on the first Friday in October. Teams are co-ed, so gather up your favorite golf buddies and get ready for a day of fun for a good cause!
This four-person scramble includes 18 holes of golf, lunch, and dinner, plus an open bar and flight prizes. Mulligans optional.
If you don’t love to play golf or you’re busy that day, tournament sponsorships are available.
