“Local people creating local change”

Fundraising for this event has been closed;

Thank you to everyone who donated to the campaign!

Each year the United Way of Manatee County enlists members of the community to participate in the Climbing for Dollars fundraising campaign.  The annual event is the brainchild of Tom Seguin, Master Gemologist and owner of Suncoast Gem Lab in Bradenton.  This year climbers flew to Boulder, Colorado and tackled a 1,000 ft. climb on the Flatirons, located on the east slope of Green Mountain.  Climbers donate their time, airfare, hotel and lodging expenses and solicit sponsorships from area residents and businesses.   Our efforts raise money each year to support the United Way of Manatee County’s five focus areas:

  • Food & Shelter
  • Intervention & Prevention for Abuse & Violence
  • Early Childhood Development
  • Services for People with Disabilities, the Elderly & their Caregivers
  • Youth Development

Enjoy the photos and video from our trip, and a big Thank You to those who supported my climb.

More photos and videos will be added soon!
