I love a Party with a Purpose and today the Greater Twin Cities United Way is celebrating their 100th birthday and launching their Centennial year with their Good For Generations Celebration. The FREE party is being held at the Minneapolis Convention Center from 5 – 8 PM and I’ve been told there’s going to be SPECIAL music performances by a few secret performers, hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.
In addition to celebrating their 100th birthday, the Greater Twin Cities United Way is launching a volunteer campaign that seeks to engage 100,000 people to volunteer this year. More details can be found online at the Greater Twin Cities United Way’s website. As an active community volunteer, I believe that helping an organization in need and sharing your talents with an organization or person that can benefit from you giving freely of your time and talents is one of the best ways to seize the day and I encourage you to volunteer with the United Way, a United Way supported organization or an organization of your choice. In the spirit of the words Martin Luther King Jr. pointedly shared, “Not everybody can be famous but everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service.”
