Saginaw's Most Stylish 2019


The Most Fashion-Forward Way to Give


Saginaw's Most Stylish is Saginaw County's most fashionable fundraiser! Community advocates saught online votes of support beginning on September 30th and ending on October 23rd.

The campaign concluded with a fun, “fashion” show held on Thursday, October 24th at Horizons Conference Center. Each participant strutted down the runway, entertaining guests and collecting as many last minute votes as possible.

At the end of the fashion show, all amounts were totaled and added to the participant’s online votes. In 2019, United Way's Saginaw's Most Stylish event raised nearly $50,000! All proceeds from the fundraiser went towards the 2020 - 2021 lineup of non-profit programs that will help United Way reach the goal of lifting nearly 5,000 Saginaw County residents out of the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) classifications by 2029.
