The annual Fire & Ice Ball is usually a black-tie gala and serves as United Way’s largest fundraising event of the year. Last year, the event netted more than $180,000.
“Fire & Ice has been our signature fundraising event since it began in 2015,” said United Way CEO Barb Kaus. “This year more than ever, we need to ensure our programs stay strong. Proceeding with Fire & Ice in a safe and socially distanced way will ensure the well-being of those who live and work in our region while allowing us to continue working to improve lives. We are grateful to our volunteer committee that has remained dedicated to creating another can’t-miss event while prioritizing safety for all.”
