Unity’s Donations to the Community

As you can see from the lists below we have been very busy in 2015, serving our community on your behalf.

We thank all of our contributors for helping make Plant City a better place to live because of your generosity.

The bulk of our resources each year come from three main fundraisers; The Plant City Strawberry Festival Vehicle Raffle, our Golf Tournament and our Sporting Clay Shoot.

Our many thanks to Steve and Susan Hurley, owners of Stingray Chevrolet, for their extreme generosity.  Their amazing donation of a beautiful red Corvette was raffled by Unity at The Florida Strawberry Festival which brought in $162,000.

A special thank you to our event sponsors and those of you who participated. Without you all of this would not have been possible.
