Reaching Out

I was talking with a referral for a speaking engagement about four months ago. I enjoy doing speaking engagements and look forward to finding new audiences. I decided to follow up with Angela this week and find out if she had any openings.

What happened instead was she told me how she has left the organization and is focusing more on her own business.

Then we talked about business and all that has transpired in the Bay Area during the past couple of years but after a few minutes we started talking about UBU and how she is involved with the Olympic Club in San Francisco.

It is one of the clubs I want to have host an auction. The idea of having a silent auction at a private country club came about when I was talking with Bill Newman from Grandstand Sports and he was telling me how they generate substantial funding for non profits through the auctions.

The most challenge component is having 200 to 300 people at an event. That’s when I thought the private club events would be such a great way to create an event.

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.
