Thank You Letter

We would like to thank you for your support and attendance for the Black Dress for a Cause Event. This was the second year of the event and we had over 250 people. You are part of our accomplishments and because of your help, we were able to host an event that showcased our amazing local businesses while giving back to a great cause.


We are happy to announce that VOICES will be receiving the funds raised from the event. The donation will be made in honor of Carolotta Davis, a long time volunteer of United Way. We want to share a big thank you to all of our sponsors, participants, and volunteers. You are of great importance in the success of our event and hope to see a continuance of support.


Last year, the donations were received by FACC (Freeport Area Church Cooperative). Organizers of the event were proud to award a generous donation. Your support in the community and desire to LIVE UNITED means a lot to us. We invite you to like the Black Dress for a Cause event Facebook page to find pictures and information regarding any upcoming events.

Thank you again!





Your friends from United Way of Northwest Illinois
