Helping Hands Auction

Making a Difference Together

Mark your calendars for the 16th Annual United Way Women in Philanthropy Helping Hands Auction on Thursday, January 26, 2023.

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 CHAD. These women are business leaders within the Lincoln community who take an active role in making our community a better place to call home.

Now celebrating its 16th year, the Helping Hands Auction raises funds to provide diapers and winter clothing to children and their families who are in need of basic necessities. This year, the auction will also benefit Epilepsy Foundation Nebraska's Seizure Training for School Personnel, which trains adults who work with children and teens in school settings throughout Lancaster County.

Corporate Sponsorships are available. Contact Michelle Bring, mbring@unitedwaylincoln or 402-441-8699 for more info.
