The Kendra Scott store at Plaza Frontenac buzzed with activity on March 21 as people browsed the jewelry displays, sipped champagne and snacked on pastel macaroons. UCP Heartland partnered with Kendra Scott to hold a 3 hour launch party for our first-ever Young Professionals Board (YPB). The event also served as a fundraiser, with Kendra Scott donating 20% of the evening’s proceeds to UCP Heartland. We had a great turnout of staff, drop-in shoppers and young professionals interested in learning more about the board.
The YPB will be the first of its kind for UCP Heartland, and we’re looking for motivated young leaders from across the community to form our founding board:
- Ages 20-40
- Passionate about advancing the productivity, independence and full citizenship of children and adults living with disabilities
- Come from a wide range of professions and experiences
- Interested in donating time, resources and expertise to the mission.
