The UCAP School 30th Anniversary Event celebrating founder and director Robert DeBlois was a great success!

The April 17, 2019 anniversary celebration raised a record $90,000 and brought together 200 guests, including alumni, parents, staff and former staff, long-time supporters and new, to honor Rob DeBlois and ensure that his work continues. (read more)
This event was a huge success thanks to you and your generous donations!

The Gem of A Man – Jewel of a School Event included:

  • A special award made by students presented to founder and director, Rob DeBlois, for 30 years of unwavering dedication to the success of all kids.
  • An award presented by Rob to his wife Bonnie DeBlois in recognition of her stalwart support and her volunteerism from the inception of the school.
  • A Live and Silent Auction
  • Student led guided tours 
Joe Wilson, Jr., of Trinity Rep, served as Emcee and Auctioneer again this year and helped UCAP reach its fundraising record by playing bidders off each other and reminding attendees how the proceeds impact the students.
The event was hosted by the Fund for UCAP. The Fund raises money for the school’s capital needs and Beyond U programs, which provide students with essential academic, physical, and cultural enrichment experiences after school, on the weekends, during vacations, and throughout the summer. Proceeds from the event will benefit Beyond U.

A huge thanks to our Event Committee for making the Gem of a Man – Jewel of a School event and to all of our UCAP friends for joining in on the fun!
