Helping Hands Auction


United Way’s Women in Philanthropy provides women an opportunity to make an impact on the quality of life in Lincoln and Lancaster County through support of United Way and Community Health Charities of Nebraska. These women are executives, professionals and supporters who take an active role in making our community a better place to call home.

Mark your calendars for the 12th Annual United Way Women in Philanthropy Helping Hands Auction at 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 31, 2019, at The Lincoln Cornhusker Marriott Hotel.

Proceeds will help purchase diapers and winter clothing for children to cover these basic needs and will also benefit pediatric brain tumor research through Team Jack Foundation.

This year’s auction will feature a wine grab and individual desserts, along with fun and unique live auction packages including a Dismal River Golf Package, concert tickets to Carrie Underwood, backyard BBQ, and more! Watch Facebook for a preview of auction items!

NEW THIS YEAR! – As a Gatsby-themed event, 1920s attire is encouraged, but not required! Plated dinner and cash bar.
