First Unitarian's Youth Group hosted an incredibly successful benefit concert on Valentine's day to support the Fuel Fund of Maryland. Over 60 people gathered in the Enoch Pratt Parish Hall to enjoy the evening's entertainment and more than $650 was raised for the Fuel Fund!
Comedian Ben Paulson shared his original material in opening for our main act, Hopeful-E (Sarah Walker, Lewis Shaw, Daniel Lemer, Luke Carney and special guest, Annie Lemieux). The band played a mix of original songs and covers. A video is available here for their cover of "My Eyes" from Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog.
Our in-house baker, Nick DiGregorio worked long hours to provide delicious cookies and brownies for the bake sale table. Chris Hutter served as our official emcee, getting things off to a rocking start by invoking the Rolling Stones. Other youth group members, Emily Cross-Barnet, Logan Wyatt, Carrie DiGregorio and Garrett Preston helped decorate, staffed the sales tables, helped clean up and otherwise contributed to making this event a smoothly run and stellar success!
Thank you to everyone who turned out to support our awesome youth and a great cause! Photos of the evening can be found here.
