Young Leaders “Puttin’ on the Ritz” to Support Early Childhood Education

The 2014 United Way of Salt Lake Young Leaders Annual Celebration was definitely the cat’s meow! We went back in time to the roaring 1920’s for a swanky, bee’s knees, and all around nifty speakeasy themed party! Guys and gals got all dolled up in their flappers, boas, fedoras, zoot suits and got their wiggle on with the Rob Bennion Band. We enjoyed fantastic fare, classic cocktails, and gave away some amazing prizes! Most importantly we raised a lot of money for the Young Leaders emphasis of supporting early childhood education for at-risk kids!
