United Way hosts event to inspire women

TOLEDO (WTVG) - The Women's Imitative of United Way hosted an event Wednesday to inspire local women.

It's the Pursing Inspiration fundraiser.

The keynote speaker at the Pursing Inspiration fundraiser was Erin Loos Cutraro, founder and CEO of "She Should Run."

The mother of two said explained that "She Should Run" is a national, non-partisan organization that encourages women to run for office.

"In this particular year, where we have a historic number of women on the ballot, we all play a role in not just looking at the women who are on the ballot now, but also looking around the corner at how much work that we have to all do to play a role in closing that gap in representation for women in elected office," Loos Cutraro said.

All proceeds form the event go towards Imagination Library which mails one free book every month to a child in need in the Toledo area.
