We are excited to welcome back our Women United event in 2022!
While we had to cancel this event in 2021, we are excited to be able to welcome it back in March 2022!
New Event Name: Women United
The last time we hosted this event, we outgrew the name of 100 Women Who Care! More than 100 Women came out to enjoy the evening.
It was then that we knew it was time to change the event name. Brining the name to the core of the event, we are excited to bring you what is now known as our "Women United" event.

Looking back on 2020
On Thursday, March 12, 2020, our third annual 100 Women Who Care took place at Delta Marriot in downtown Utica. Hosted by our Women United Affinity Group, it was a night focused on women's health and wellness sponsored by Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Guests participated in designing some fun crafts such as mason jar painting with BB Designs, and creating their own coasters, thanks to Saunders Kahler, LLP! They relished in some "me time" with a chair massage by Universal Wellness and stretched it out with Move Breathe Live. Guests were able to visit with vendors, such as Monat, Anamolie, Lucianna's Boutique, Paparazzi Accessories, and doTERRA, selling home, beauty, and style products They also learned some health tips and life skills from vendors like Clearly Connected and Paradigm Consulting.
Delta Marriott provided a lovely soup and salad bar for guests to create their own nourishing dinner. Back by popular demand, pierogis were devoured, provided by Ela Pawlowski and the Polish Community Club Utica, and halfmoon cookies by Hemstraughts Bakery! Other local food vendors included smoothie samples from Rollin' Bowlz Acai, and Coffee from Utica Coffee Roasting Company. Of course, the libations were completed by a cash bar with a signature cocktail (or mocktail).
Darling and Dapper Acoustic Duo graced our ears and played a fantastic mix of songs to delight all ages.
