Surprising Gifts

We have had some very fun and exciting gifts that have involved our children in the past few months that we wanted to share with everyone!

  1. Wyatt’s Birthday Party: For Wyatt’s 5th birthday in lieu of presents, his parents asked that guests bring in donations for UCP-OC and the Shea Center both of which are organizations that have made a difference in Wyatt’s life. Wyatt’s birthday party was Angry Birds theme, and his mother designed a box for the donations to be placed in. When Wyatt presented the gifts to UCP-OC he said, ““I want to share my birthday presents to help other kids like you…[then corrected himself and said] like me.” Is your heart melting? Ours definitely are! 
  2. Wedding: This past September we celebrated the marriage of one of our children’s parents. They very humbly told their guests that they were not in need of presents, but that UCP-OC and CHOC have played a vital role in their child’s life. Similarly to Wyatt, they requested that their guests in lieu of presents make a donation to UCP-OC. This has spread the word about UCP-OC and how it is impacting lives throughout Orange County. We were so honored to receive these generous gifts.
  3. Citizens Business Bank Golf Tournament: Abby welcomed a visit from Citizens Business Bank today with a donation of $5,000 from their golf tournament benefitting UCP-OC and other OC charities.–Abby’s mother is alsostarting a UCP-OC Parent Committee to assist with planning for our Gala in May. If you would like more information on the committee please contact Elizabeth Wylie
