United Way of Greater Kansas City – Tocqueville Society

United Way of Greater Kansas City’s Tocqueville Society has been busy recently with two exciting events. The Tocqueville Society’s Fall Reception was held at Fishtech, and Liz and Paul Uhlmann’s beautiful home was the setting for a gathering of some new CEOs in town to honor new entrepreneurs. Members of The Tocqueville Society create action in support of United Way’s mission to fight for the health, education and financial stability of everyone in the community.
