8/12: MetroHartford Alliance Rising Star Breakfast - Erica Meets ALICE Today
August 13, 2015
On Wednesday, August 12, nearly 250 guests joined us at our annual Rising Star Breakfast hosted by the MetroHartford Alliance at the Hartford Marriott Downtown. The breakfast featured ALICE with host Erica Hill from the Today Show. Erica and guests met ALICE and also stepped into her shoes during a United Way Making Choices activity when guests experienced the tough financial decisions that ALICE households face every day. At the event, we also welcomed our new campaign chair, Greg M. Barats from Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company and our board chair, Gregory C. Toczydlowski from Travelers, who both shared their personal, childhood ALICE stories. #MeetALICE #ALICECT
