2021 Humanitarian of the Year

2021 Humanitarian of the Year Event Wrap Up

The 2021 UCP Humanitarian of Year, held on May 20, 2021, raised $314,455. These funds will stay in our region to support our children.  UCP thanks all of our sponsors and donors for their support and generosity, and extends a heartfelt thank you to our Humanitarian, Arlen Orchard, and our Presenting Sponsor, SMUD, for their support and leadership in the community.  

About the Humanitarian 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 a brighter future for today’s children.
