The United Way of Morgan County has a tradition called the Girlfriends' Gala. Set to a different theme each year, it is a time for women to celebrate women, and for men, as celebrity servers, to honor them. This coming year, for the 2019 Gala, the theme will be celebrating the age of Disco in a "Boogie Wonderland!" We are so excited for this super fun event and we cannot wait to dance the night away for such a good cause!
