Benefitting UWSN Partner Nonprofits
Las Vegas, April 22, 2023 – Over 500 local leaders joined United Way of Southern Nevada and Women United for the fashion and shopping event of the season during their annual fashion show luncheon on Saturday. This year’s theme was “Women Reimagined,” empowering women in the workplace, in education, in the community, and all sectors of society. Celebrating the impact of local female leaders, proceeds of the event will help forge pathways out of poverty for local women, children, families, and individuals in Southern Nevada.
“Women United is one of the most important giving groups associated with the United Way of Southern Nevada,” said UWSN President and CEO Julian High. “For the last 16 years, they have invested $3.4 million into the Southern Nevada community and given over 8,000 volunteer hours. For this year’s event, they are focusing on teaching women how to reimagine themselves in these new times, in order to bring new energy and enthusiasm to the work they do for themselves and for their community.”
Attendees of the event previewed new spring fashions and had the opportunity to purchase evening, athletic, leisure, and business clothing, shoes, and accessories from pop-up shops, as well as via the silent and live auctions. Guests had the opportunity to win over $30,000 in raffle prizes, thanks to event partners and sponsors, including PNC Bank, NV Energy, Southwest Gas, Maid Brigade, Bank of Nevada, and Antonio Accornero.
Mr. Accornero hosted a table at the event for the Women of Metro, headed by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s first female Assistant Sheriff, Sasha Larkin. “We need more women in the police department,” said Accornero, “and I’m proud to support and empower women to achieve their potential in all sectors of the workforce.”
United Way of Southern Nevada stands at the center of the community to provide solutions to Clark County's toughest problems. Working side-by-side with Southern Nevada nonprofits, businesses, and local leaders like Antonio Accornero, UWSN tackles critical human services issues and builds pathways out of poverty. Donations to UWSN stay local and support the entire community and not just one cause. For more information about UWSN, please visit https://www.uwsn.org/
