The Sole Sisters are a dynamic and committed group of prominent women and philanthropists who do more than raise funds in support of the Greenwich United Way’s efforts. They take the time to learn about the needs in the community and how those needs are addressed by local agencies partnering with the United Way. While the group is serious about making a difference in the community they all share, they also believe it is important to have fun in the process. That’s why their logo is a shoe! And their motto is “Women Stepping Up to Help Others Step Forward.”
Each year, the Sole Sisters raise money to serve a specific need in the community. In the past, those services have supported children, youth, families, seniors, individuals in crisis, and increased demand for basic human services as a result of budget cuts taking place at the federal, state and local level has made this initiative even more critical. This year the Sole Sisters are proud to support the Greenwich United Way’s leadership efforts in supporting community solutions in the areas of education, self-sufficiency and health.
The Luncheon is the Sole Sisters’ primary annual fundraiser, and since its inception 15 years ago, the event has raised over $2 million in support of the Greenwich United Way’s efforts. While the Luncheon features a fashion and home accessories boutique, most importantly, there is always a notable guest speaker who inspires the crowd of 350-400 women and men attending. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Luncheon will be virtual.
