Humanitarian Dinner

UCP’s Humanitarian of the Year Event

Each year, UCP selects an individual who has generously supported the community as the recipient of the Humanitarian of the Year award. We appreciate the work they do and honor them for their work, generosity and support of organizations within our Sacramento and Northern California.  Proceeds of the Humanitarian of the Year event go to fund the many services and programs of UCP, helping individuals with developmental disabilities live a life without limits.  Take a minute to learn about this year’s event and help us celebrate next year’s humanitarian by attending the event, sponsoring or donating to our silent auction in 2020!  We’ll have more information on 2020’s event soon. Thank you!

2019 Humanitarian of the Year Dinner

UCP’s 2019 Humanitarian of the Year dinner was held on Thursday, May 16, 2019. It was a record setting event in every way, and it’s one attendees won’t soon forget!

New Records Set:
Amount Raised: $480,000 – $160,000 more than our best previous yearThat’s Amazing!
Attendees: 680 – many of whom had never attended a UCP event before!

UCP’s Humanitarian of the Year, Kevin Nagle put time and energy into making this UCP’s best event in the past 26 years.  His commitment to the organization, coupled with his heart felt backing of the work UCP performs in the community was the key to making the 2019 event one to remember. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported Kevin Nagle and UCP!

Your support is helping open doors for individuals with developmental disabilities!
