For the past seventeen years, the United Way has held a Dinner & Silent Auction Event that has proven to be the single largest fundraiser for the United Way and its 40 partner agencies. The event will be held Saturday, January 30, 2016, 6:30pm at the Hilton of Sandestin.  Your support of this fundraiser contributes greatly to improve the quality of life, human health and welfare in Okaloosa and Walton Counties. Plan to attend and make this year’s event extra special and ensure the success of this exciting event.

Enjoy a relaxing evening with friends, great food, entertainment and an array of fabulous auction items. Thanks to Fred Astaire Dance Studios and their fabulous instructors, a local Dance Contest will provide fun entertainment.  Our 2016 Celebrity Dancers are Dr. Brodie Bowman, Sarah Leatherman, Katie Sharon, Marnie Tate and Steve Wolfrom and each one began early raising funds prior to the night of the event. They will perform their dance routine that evening with a Fred Astaire professional dancer. Friends and family members may support their dancer by making a donation on the United Way website, www.united-way.org or donating the evening of event. The couple who raises the most dollars for the United Way wins the dance competition.

Come and get your groove on with the music of the 60’s provided by the band, Strange Brew
