March of Dimes is very pleased to announce that Lisa Shelnutt, Senior Vice President, Commercial Real Estate Division Manager at United Community Bank is this year’s Real Estate and Economic Development Award Recipient. We will present this award during a special virtual event on Tuesday, November 17 at 4:30 pm with private viewing parties for sponsors.

This event, present by United Community Bank and in its 23 successive year, honors a member of the real estate community who has demonstrated a long history of service, leadership and vision. Since 2004, Lisa has been a top Commercial Real Estate lender across the Upstate. Further, she is no stranger to March of Dimes: Her daughter, Lara, was born 5 weeks prematurely and spent 10 long days in the NICU fighting for her life.

“We are proud to recognize Lisa Shelnutt with this award, and to host this event which will help all moms and babies in the Upstate,” said Laura Goodwin, Executive Director of March of Dimes for the Western Carolinas. “Funds raised will help support vital research and community programs to help give every baby a fighting chance.”

In addition to United Community Bank, this event has the support of many local companies including Silver-level Sponsors, Cherry Bekaert, Foster Victor Wealth Advisors, Hughes Development, Corporation, and Vannoy Construction. Sponsorships are available starting at $1,500. And you can tune in and watch the virtual event for free. For more information email or visit
