United Way’s WOMEN UNITED Breakfast Goes Digital
The organization worked to protect more than 1000 women and instead sent an electronic message we can all appreciate
Thanks to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, and following the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United Way team made the decision to re-imagine the Women United Breakfast and deliver the event digitally.
The organization’s breakfast co-chairs, Nelly Y. Farra and her daughters, Dr. Josefina Farra Talone and Nelly M. Farra, the Women United Executive Committee Chair, Soledad Picón, and presenting sponsor, Leslie Miller Saiontz – all Women United members and inspiring women in their own right – welcomed Jill Ellis, our newest Women United member, for an engaging and powerful interview.
