Guests walked into the Trinkle Center to the soft sounds of live jazz being played by students from Plant City High School. It was a night of appreciation and the room was filled with jovial attendees.
Hearty Southern food, giveaways and a moment to reflect and thank those who gave to the organization were the core of the evening. Sharon Moody thanked employees of Stingray Chevrolet and Felton’s Meat and Produce for donating a portion of their paychecks to the organization and she spent time thanking many in the audience for their personal contributions including Tampa Bay Vette Club and Enterprise Holdings Foundation.
Unity in the Community is a nonprofit organization that raises funds to help those in need throughout Plant City. The group has been active since 1999 and supports local organizations like the United Food Bank of Plant City, the Plant City Family YMCA, the Trinity Special Sportsman Ministry and the Stuff the Bus program. It also supports local youth via a variety of scholarships.
This year alone, volunteers were able to raise $228,000 just in the Stingray Chevrolet car raffle at the Florida Strawberry Festival. A year of hard work brought success for the group and Unity wanted the community to join them in a leisurely night of celebration.
