Macon, Ga. – United Way of Central Georgia (UWCG) has launched Pink Promise United, a new initiative that will provide breast cancer awareness, education, and screening mammograms for women with the fewest resources who are uninsured, under-insured, low-income and unable to access care.
The initiative was created to help fill the void with the loss of the local Susan G. Komen chapter, which had been providing these benefits to local women.
Pink Promise United is a key initiative of UWCG’s Women United affinity group. Women United is part of a growing, global force of more than 70,000 women who address pressing issues for women and children in their community.
UWCG also announced that Butler Automotive Group will drive this initiative through a multi-year sponsorship of Women United.
“We are excited to partner with United Way of Central Georgia to help launch Women United. Although we support numerous organizations, we had been looking for something that we could help grow into something with significant reach. As passionate as we are about our business, we are equally passionate about the communities in which we do business,” said Bonnie Butler Gibson of Butler Automotive Group and the Women United chair. “We have always valued the important role that women play in business, within the family, and in our communities.”
Central Georgia women who want to make a difference in our communities through volunteering, leadership, philanthropy and service make up the growing Women United roster. The group’s focus also includes raising the awareness of the many resources women bring to the community, as well as recognizing women’s accomplishments.
Membership in Women United starts with gifts of $250 or more to United Way of Central Georgia. For more information please go to the Women United website, or contact Jaime Kaplan at 478-621-7805 or Jkaplan@unitedwaycg.com
