CANCELLED: 34th Annual Community Leaders & Awards Dinner

United Way of Greater Waterbury has made the decision to cancel the 34th Annual Community Leaders and Awards Dinner originally scheduled for April 30 and then rescheduled to June 2nd.

While this is a disappointing announcement to make, we’d like to focus on the positive and, frankly, much more important news: we still have some amazing volunteers to recognize! They reflect the spirit of the Greater Waterbury community, a willingness to help each other.

So much has happened in the past weeks that it seems impossible that we selected our award winners only a short time ago. We were just putting together their stories for the awards dinner program when the world changed and the word coronavirus started to take on a meaning with many ramifications.

One of those impacts has been to modify our events and activities. We plan to honor our award winners at the annual Campaign Leadership Breakfast and Kickoff on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at La Bella Vista, 380 Farmwood Rd.

Mark your calendar and watch for event details as we look forward to celebrating
