The local organization is celebrating 90 years of living united. For nine decades, it has been helping nonprofit organizations maximize their efforts by coordinating the collective strength of individual donors, local businesses, nonprofit partners and community resources.
If you want to be part of the celebration, Foothills United Way is holding a party Nov. 9 at the Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield. It will feature dinner, cocktails and the all-vocal band Face.

You might remember Beckie Hemmerling, who last year departed Boulder after building The Organic Dish, a company that prepared meals of organic and fresh ingredients.
For her zero-waste kitchen, she was honored by the Business Report in 2011 as an Eco Hero.
She’s now in Charleston, South Carolina, running her new business, Eat Simple Food. You can check out her new venture online at www.eatsimplefood.com.
