Along with recognizing the industry’s outstanding achievements, the event also raises critical funds for United Way’s work across the region to improve life for ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) and households in poverty. Despite working hard, ALICE essential workers struggle to afford the basics.
