Townsend Security heartily supports non-profit organizations in our community. So it comes as no surprise that several Townsend Security employees were spotted at the annual United Way “Power of the Purse” fundraiser last week.
The event raises money to help disadvantaged women, young and old, become more financially stable and self-sufficient. This is a cause that speaks to the hearts of the strong women of Townsend, how could we not show our support?
Over 100 women (and a few men) from all backgrounds and professions joined together to meet new friends and support a wonderful cause. We strolled the silent auction, enjoyed a wonderful meal and participated in the bidding frenzy of the progressive auction. Funds raised from the auction went directly to support the financial stability of women and girls of Thurston County, where Townsend Security has its headquarters.
The evening was a success in so many ways. Over $10,000 was raised to create scholarships and help fund the overall program. We were able to visit with old friends and make new acquaintances. And as the Ladies of Townsend packed up our purses and treasures from the evening we couldn't help but feel fortunate to have been in such good company while supporting a wonderful cause.
For the month of March, 2011 Townsend Security is asking you to help us support the United Way. Join the conversation and collobarate with fellow IT Security Professionals, we'll donate $1.00 for each new follower on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
