Breakfast Sets Record for Giving

November 21, 2011

More than 700 people packed the Crystal Room on November 18th for the premiere networking event in the region -- UAC's 42nd Anniversary Breakfast. With the help of event co-chairs, Donn Scott and Grant Rawdin, and a list of generous sponsors, UAC raised a record $351,350.

At the event, guests were also extremely generous with their donations to UAC's Annual Thanksgiving Basket Program. The $2,000 raised was welcomed and appreciated by the 1,000 families on the receiving end of a full Thanksgiving meal distributed this week at Brown's Family ShopRite at 24th & Oregon Ave. (See article below).

Thanks to our top sponsors for their support:
AmeriHealth Mercy; Wescott Financial Advisory Group LLC; Independence Blue Cross; OARC; PECO; PNC; Wells Fargo; William P. Becker; Bradley & Bradley; Citizens Bank; Comcast; Concordis Advisors; Pepsi Bottling Group; Turner Construction; and Replica Creative, LLC.
