Humanitarian Dinner

2021 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.
