Dear Precious Friends,
I am thrilled to report that our 2023 Annual Fundraiser was a big success! In the history of UBTS it stands as the highest amount received from a single fundraiser to date. Our final total raised will be shared at our Business Meeting on January 14th at 12:30 PM.
Paula Benanti was the lucky recipient of our Harry and David Gift Basket valued at $150. Out of her generosity of spirit, Paula chose to tithe the money for the basket back to Unity by the Shore. Thank you, Paula!
From the bottom of my heart, I thank each person and organization who contributed to our Annual Fundraiser. I also would like to thank the Finance Team and the Fundraising Teams for their sacred service. Kerstin McKitrick is the chair of both our Finance Team and Fundraising Team, and she has done a mighty work. Kerstin, I am grateful for your generous spirit of possibility!
Won’t you join me in thanking Kerstin and the below individuals who helped to make our Fundraiser a success:
Lisa Sanchez UBTS Office Administrator
Charlie Kirlew Finance Team Member
Gwen Lewis Board & Fundraiser Team Member
Deborah Bartok Fundraiser Team Member
Ilene Rubin Fundraiser Team Member
Over the last several years we have weathered many storms, and I am heartened by how we have come together to meet the challenges before us. Let us make 2024 a year of abundance as we seek new ways to live our mission; Unity by the Shore is a heart-centered, welcoming and inclusive community that supports the spiritual awakening, empowerment and transformation of individuals and the world.
In the words of Oprah Winfrey, “I don’t think you ever stop giving. I really don’t. I think it’s an on-going process. And it’s not just about being able to write a check. It’s being able to touch somebody’s life.” My dear friends, how will you offer your time, talent, and treasure in service to others in the upcoming year?
