UCM Executive Director Alison DeCourcey welcomes more than 350 guests to the 26th annual Capitol Steps Benefit for UCM on Nov. 5 at the US Patent & Trademark Office.
The Friends of UCM hosted a sold-out crowd for its annual fundraising event, “The Capitol Steps Benefit for UCM,” in the Madison Auditorium at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Sunday, Nov. 5. The 26th annual signature event raised nearly $87,000 that will provide help to vulnerable individuals, families, and children in southeastern Fairfax County.
“Poverty is no laughing matter, but The Capitol Step's political satire was as hilarious and timely as ever,” said Elin Bohn, president of The Friends of UCM and member of the UCM Board of Directors.
More than 350 guests enjoyed the evening with friends and colleagues, with chances to win raffle baskets.
“UCM is grateful to our hosts and to our sponsors who make this event possible, especially Title Sponsor Doug and Eileen Kennett and Diamond Sponsor, AT&T, Diamond Sponsor,” said Alison DeCourcey, UCM executive director. The full list of more than 40 event sponsors is available on the UCM website at www.ucmagency.org.
