Ladies Fall Crawl will benefit United Way of Stanly County

Although she is relatively new to position as director of United Way of Stanly County, Salem knows that the annual Ladies Fall Crawl in downtown Albemarle is a big fundraiser for the nonprofit organization.

“It’s a very important fundraiser for us, and typically brings in around $8,000,” Taylor said. “We are fortunate to have a lot of the event food and prizes donated by businesses, as well as some event sponsorships, and that really helps to make it a nice event.”

The 9th annual crawl will be 6-10 p.m. Tuesday. The main event site is at Tiffany’s at the Boardroom (135 W. Main St.), with stops including Five Points Public House (304 E. Main St.), ReMax Realty (320 E. Main St.), Vac & Dash (154 S. First St.), Innovative Aesthetics (209 E. Main St.), Merle Norman (120 N. Second St.), Blue Sand Realty & Design (251 W. Main St.) and La T Dah Boutique (102 N. Second St.).

Tickets are $50 and available at the United Way office inside the Stanly County Chamber of Commerce building, 116 E. North St., Albemarle, online at unitedwaystanly.org or at Lah T Dah.

“It continues to be a great night out,” Taylor said. “Attendees get to enjoy a night on the town, visit the various stops for drinks, hor d’oeuvres and shopping, and end up at the newly renovated Tiffany’s at the Boardroom for dinner, dancing, vendors and door prizes.

“This is our first year at Tiffany’s at the Boardroom as the main venue, and we are very excited to showcase this incredible historic downtown building that has been closed for a number of years,” she added. “Tiffany Eudy Dahle has done a wonderful job of renovating the Boardroom and we are very appreciative of her for sharing it with us for this event, and for hosting it in previous years at Tiffany’s on Main. Our goal is for this evening event is to bring exposure to downtown and local businesses while providing a fun and unique experience for attendees.”

All proceeds from the event benefit the United Way of Stanly County,

“The United Way of Stanly County works to support local nonprofits by mobilizing volunteers, educating the community about areas of needs and raising funds to support human service programs,” Taylor said.

“We want the ladies who attend to enjoy themselves and have a fun time with their friends, win some prizes, have a great dinner and shop some local businesses,” Taylor added.
