LEESBURG — Local women are invited to come learn about Women United and dancing.

Lake and Sumter County women are welcomed to attend a Women United relaunch event and interest meeting at Anastassia Ballroom and Dance studio in Leesburg.

The Wine, Learn and Dance event will occur from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Oct. 12 at the dance studio, 32624Blossom Lane. The night will feature refreshments, Merengue dance lessons and information about Women United.

United Way’s Women United was created as a way to engage, empower and educate local women interested in strengthening their community through philanthropy, volunteering, advocacy and leadership.

“Women United has a local impact on the community that is significant, and it’s really powerful to see that women can come together to make a difference not just financially but with a hands-on approach,” UWLS CEO Jessica Davis said. “It’s an opportunity for women to support causes that matter to United Way, to the community and that certainly matter to them.”

Those interested in learning more about Women United should RSVP by Oct. 9 at uwls.org/wine-dance-learn. For questions about the event, please email womenunited@uwls.org
