Jan/Feb 2018 • 26 Metro United Way 100 YEARS AND GROWING More than 500 guests gathered in the Louisville Downtown MarrioĴ to celebrate Metro United Way's significant milestone--100 years of service to communities on both sides of the river. "Changing Generations" was the theme of the festive evening with entertainment that coincided with Veteran's Day on Nov. 11 and paid tribute to the military. The program recognized past and present leaders, partners, and or- ganization volunteers, with president and CEO Theresa Reno-Weber sharing her vision for the non-profit's continuing impact in the next 100 years. Presenting sponsors were Brown-Forman, LG&E, and UPS. The gala's climax was punctuated with confeĴi, balloons, and danc- ing to Endless Summer, following a surprise announcement of a $1 million challenge grant from 2017 Campaign Chair MaĴ Thornton and his wife Fran. Their gift will match all donations before Jan. 18, 2018. The Metro United Way's 100th Anniversary Celebration was a family affair for the Browns of New Albany: Joe, past board chair, and his wife Sharon; and their daughter-in-law Lindsay and son MaĴ. Sharing the evening's excitement among MUW leaders and staff- ers were Southern Indiana residents Victoria Monday and Jan Sherrell. Staff members and Southern In- diana residents Lynn Armstrong and Donna Wooten reflected the spirit of joy that permeated the event and the organization's sig- nificant accomplishments. Your Community presented by Dr. Andrew Melon, Superin- tendent of Greater Clark School Corp., and his wife Karla shared Hoosier pride in the 100th anni- versary of Metro United Way.
