The Unity Center
Organized by: Mike Esoff
This fundraiser is to support a community center in Sanford, Florida. But not just any community center; I want to create a place where people of all ages and interests can come to find daily opportunities to learn, share and simply connect with others in their own area. My vision is to start a not-for-profit business that operates out of said center with the dedicated intention of organizing, hosting and of course, attending activities all day every day. The list of activities at the center can be endless, basically whatever the community seems to be in need of. I believe we all have valuable experience and unique perspective to offer each other, but we don't always find the right atmosphere to do it in. Some ideas I am really excited about participating in are meetings about gardening (yes there will be a garden!), cooking (mm-hmm, a kitchen too!), healthy eating, nutrition, herbs, yoga, meditation, comedy, music, dance, exercise and art. And that'll just be the beginning! I plan on organizing a petition for people who support the center, along with a section where signees can offer ideas as to what they'd like to see out of the center. I hope to attract people of all interests, whether it be someone of little experience looking to learn, someone of great experience looking to share, or anything in between. I will also host as many cook-outs and cook-offs as I can get away with to help raise funds and fun in the neighborhood. Any lessons, meetings, and activities can have optional or minimal fees, if we attract enough support. The money from this fundraiser (if any) will be for the rent of the property, and to launch the business off the ground and into the community. Thank you!
