About UWYC 60th Birthday Blowout

United Way of Yellowstone County was founded in 1961. For 60 years we have seen Yellowstone County through hard times and happy ones, and we have been honored to be the vehicle that so many people have used to help each other and to receive help in our community.

The impact of COVID-19 has dramatically affected our ability to bring in funds that are needed to provide our programs, services and funding, at the same time that our community's needs are increasing. We need your support more than ever!

Our fundraising goal for our 60th Birthday is $60,000. That's a lot of candles, but we know you can help us light them!

Join us at www.uwyellowstone.org/60bdayblowout so you can:

  • Register for our free online auction which will start at 10am on March 26th!
    • Check back regularly as we will be adding new packages weekly!
  • Sponsor our event and show your support!
  • Purchase raffle tickets!
  • Share your UWYC Impact Story!
  • Be inspired to volunteer!

Our Birthday Blowout will culminate May 11-13 with a Diaper Drive to benefit Family Promise of Yellowstone Valley, a blood drive, and raffling of an exciting prize (stay tuned for an announcement)!

We'll be celebrating all month long, and there is no cost to participate—all are welcome!
