A message from our President.
 

   

I have been a part of the Barrington Area United Way for years as a volunteer, only becoming a board member last year. I admired the due-diligence of the allocation process and how the organization has a leadership role within the community with The Healthier Barrington Coalition. So much of what BAUW does for and with the community is behind the scenes and not known by the general public, but helps make a big difference in the lives of many in need in the Barrington area.

The three signature events held each year are unique to the organization. They are pretty low-key and always have a vision of how the event will benefit the community, in a style that best represents it, as well:

Band in the Barn, is just that, a Band in the Barn at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital! Very casual, with jeans the choice of dress of most of the attendees, guests enjoys live music, casual food, beer, wine and a smores bar, held fireside.

Power of the Purse celebrates women helping women. Each year women are given the opportunity to become a member for $100 and help decide which organization, with a program that benefits women in the community, will benefit from the event. At the luncheon, members and their guests can bid on a large silent auction of purse-packages, take part in an impact raffle for a special designer purse and learn who the recipient of the grant for that year will be.

Finally, our Golf Outing is probably one of the most reasonable around! For $150 a player or $600 a foursome, golfers can enjoy a continental breakfast, great day of golf and a fun luncheon to wrap up the day.

Barrington Area United Way is serious about its service to the community! It welcomes members of the community to help in many ways. If you only have a few hours a year, I encourage you to get involved in allocations or attend one of the great events. It is a great way to learn about the many organizations we support that provide invaluable services to those in need. One of the few local United Way’s still in existence, monies raised in this community – stay in this community!
