Imagine Awards

Tuesday, October 7th 2014 - 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
at Alumni Hall
211 Emmet Street

Get ready for Charlottesville’s most inspiring evening of the year! Jefferson Area CHiP (Children’s Health Improvement Program) will be holding its 4th annual Imagine Awards on Tuesday October 7th at 6pm in UVA’s Alumni Hall. Awards will go to local families who, with the support and encouragement of CHiP nurses and family support workers, were able to overcome obstacles and tap their own unique strengths as parents to provide a healthy, loving home for their children

Every year we share each honoree’s story through powerful documentary short films to an audience of community members and leaders who bear witness to the power of personal transformation. It is safe to say that no one leaves the evening unchanged by what they see.

Last year’s honorees included a refugee family from Somalia,  a young mother who overcame substance abuse, and a teen mother who went from homeless to homeowner. Each one showed strength, resilience and determination to make positive change. You can view any/all videos here:

This year we look forward to presenting equally compelling stories. Get your tickets today on our website:

Women United is thrilled to invite the community to our 2014 Human Services Grants Award Luncheon, where we award two $22,500 grants to local
non-profits. For nearly a decade Women United has hosted this event and awarded significant grants to area non-profits that serve women and children.

This year we are pleased to announce our keynote speaker, a Charlottesville native, Anne-Marie Slaughter. Dr. Slaughter currently serves as president and CEO of the New America Foundation, a public policy institute and idea incubator based in Washington and New York. She holds distinction as the first woman director of Policy Planning for the United States Department of State. In 2012 she published an article which helped reignite a national debate regarding society’s continued gender inequality. This article, entitled “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” continues to be the most read article in the history of The Atlantic.

We anticipate that this event will sell out quickly, so please reserve your space early!
