Thank you to everyone who attended our recent Tocqueville event “Revving Up for the Future!” Supporters and friends from Boulder and Broomfield Counties gathered to celebrate our impact in early childhood success while admiring unique and vintage cars.

This event focused on our Dream Big collaborative, a partnership of 9 organizations working to develop a streamlined approach for the success of all children in our community. Did you know that 1 in 4 children in our area live at or near the poverty line? With your help we can continue to raise awareness and support for our work, ensuring that all children in our community have access to the resources they need to succeed.

We are proud to have incredible members of our Tocqueville Society who generously support the collaborative work at Foothills United Way. We are grateful to Terry and Noel Hefty for graciously hosting this event. It is with your support and generosity that we can achieve so much in our three impact areas.
