Friends to the Rescue

I have gone through two event planners who I’ve trained and given them all they need so they can do the fund raising for me for the school. The budget is $4.4 million and I’ve designed several events to raise the entire amount.

Today I got to meet with Kate Johnston who has been out of my life for more than a year. She moved to Germany to launch a new company, then six months in Florida and just came back to the Bay Area.

I heard about the Food Bank’s fund raiser in Oakland today and Kate said she’d meet me there. We started out having a cup of coffee at the Waterfront Hotel, since the Barnes and Noble Starbucks is no longer there.

We had a great time catching up and the weather was the most perfect May Day you could imagine.

I told Kate about my dilemma with the event organizers and she offered to introduce me to Jim Plunkett and a friend who is a professional event planner.

So my friend Kate has offered to come through for me!

About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
