In a heartwarming and inspiring event, UCP of Central Florida recently hosted its annual Faces Behind The Miracles Breakfast. The occasion was a heartfelt tribute to the patrons who play an indispensable role in making the dreams of UCP students a reality.
This event, hosted by the passionate Eryka Washington Perry, was not just a celebration but also a moment to express gratitude to those who have been instrumental in shaping the lives of countless children and families.
Building a Brighter Tomorrow
The overarching theme of this year's breakfast was "Building a Brighter Tomorrow," and it was encapsulated with the symbolism of Legos and construction. Just like these tiny building blocks, UCP believes in creating a foundation for a brighter future, one piece at a time.
The event was filled with touching moments and performances by the talented UCP students, representing both the Bailes and Downtown campuses. These young individuals showcased their remarkable skills, leaving the audience in awe of their capabilities. The breakfast was a testament to the incredible potential that resides in each child.
Stories of Transformation
Amanda and Matt Rogers, parents of a UCP student, took the stage to share their personal stories and experiences working with UCP. Their heartfelt testimonials resonated with everyone present, emphasizing the profound and lasting impact that UCP has on both children and their families. The transformation brought about by UCP's dedicated team was clear and inspiring.
Dr. and Mrs. N. Diebel, along with Sean Kelly, joined hands with the charismatic student, Ava, to convey their heartfelt appreciation to the entire UCP community. Their presence added a personal touch to the event and reminded us all that it's the collective effort of patrons, friends, family, students, and staff that truly makes UCP the exceptional and nurturing community that it is.
