More than 200 people joined us for our annual Live United Celebration and Annual Meeting on Tuesday, January 29. Normally these are two separate meetings, held at different times of the year (November and April). We made the decision to combine the events to accomplish two goals:
- Make sure those who work hard to raise the dollars, those who allocate it in the form of Education, Income and Health grants,and those who support the work of 2-1-1, Hands On Asheville-Buncombe and Middle School Success can be recognized together.
- Make sure everyone can see the positive impact of their collective work.
Over the course of the next few weeks we'll be sharing information from that meeting. In the meantime we want to give a big shout out to the good folks at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel for a great space and for taking such good care of us. Be sure to thank them if you are over there.
And, in case you missed it, here is the video that opened the event up... Enjoy!
Many thanks to everyone involved in the creation and filming of this epic video but most especially thanks to Gina Gallo and Maria Snyder for their lyric work and to the Eaton Band for rocking the house. The Eaton Band are:
