Friends of UCM to light up the night at spring gala

March 20, 2013 by  

The Friends of UCM Spring Gala is coming up early in April and is a fundraiser for the United Community Ministries, which provides services to the community like job training, after-school programs, counseling, financial aid, and food for those who need it.

The gala them for this year will be ‘Light up the Night in Black and White’. Guests will be treated to delicious food, a silent auction, drinks, live musical entertainment, dancing, and a live auction. It sounds like it will be a very enjoyable evening for all.

Sponsorships are available from $500 – $5,000, with those who plan to sponsor the event having until March 22. Sponsors and those who plan to donate items can let their current customers know about their kindness in a mailing – perhaps in the form of a flyer designed and printed with the help of Alexandria printing companies. Flyers are not that expensive to produce but are currently amongst the most effective forms of advertising.

Local companies and organizations have been offering donations, with last Saturday, March 16, being the deadline for them to have done this.

The Spring Gala will take place at the Mount Vernon Country Club on April 6 beginning at 6:00 pm, and tickets are $150 each. Those who need more information can call the United Community Ministries at 703-768-7106, or can visit the UCM website to have a look at other programs and events in the pipeline.
