Make a Difference this Holiday Season
Holiday Celebrations with Heart

The Baltimore & DC area chapters of the Ulman Cancer Fund’s Board of Young Adult Advisors {BOYAA} are hosting two special celebrations to support the 5th Annual Holiday Gift Drive! Bring a gift for a local patient fighting cancer, and your first drink is on us. Both events are free to attend, and prizes will be awarded to the attendees with the most festive holiday-themed attire.

It’s not too late to join the BOYAA and make a difference in the lives of young adults impacted by cancer – if you’re a young professional in Baltimore or Washington DC, and you’re looking for a meaningful and fun way to give back, join us for the 2013-2014 service year! Email to find out more.

Holiday Gift Drive – Get Involved!
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults’ Holiday Gift Drive is a program supported by community partners, volunteers, and UCF’s young professionals group, the Board of Young Adult Advisors. Together, we collect holiday gifts for families with a family member going through active cancer treatment and experiencing financial hardship.
Last year, we were able to provide gifts for almost 150 individuals in the Baltimore, Howard County, DC, and Annapolis areas. With your help, we’ll be able to serve more families than ever before.
