We at Arizona Urban Youth Excel (UYE) are overflowing with gratitude! Thanks to the incredible outpouring of support from our amazing community at Brushstrokes & Blessings, we were able to raise over $35,000! This incredible sum will directly impact the lives of at-risk teens, empowering them to connect with their faith and build a brighter future.

A Vibrant Canvas of Compassion

Brushstrokes & Blessings wasn’t just an event – it was a testament to the power of community. Every creative spirit, compassionate neighbor, and dedicated sponsor who joined us became a vital brushstroke on the canvas of hope. Your participation, no matter the size, played a crucial role in painting a brighter future for deserving young people.

Cultivating Hope Through Faith

UYE believes that faith acts as a powerful fertilizer, nurturing the potential within each child. By partnering with existing churches, schools, and other organizations, we create a fertile ground of support. Here, kids can flourish not just physically, but also emotionally and spiritually. Thanks to your generosity, these teens will have access to a network of guidance and resources that will help them overcome challenges and bloom into their best selves.

Witnessing the Colors of Gratitude

Brushstrokes & Blessings wasn’t just about fundraising – it was about celebrating change. It was a beautiful space where like-minded individuals who share a passion for making a positive difference could connect. Together, we formed a beautiful mosaic of compassion, united in our desire to invest in the dreams of these teens. And the most rewarding part? Seeing the smiles and genuine appreciation on their faces. Their gratitude serves as a powerful reminder of the impact we can create when we come together as a community.


A Special Thank You to Scott MacIntyre

The event was further enriched by the inspiring performance and message of Scott MacIntyre. His story of resilience and unwavering faith resonated deeply with everyone, perfectly capturing UYE’s mission: providing at-risk teens with a supportive community, essential faith tools, and resources to address their spiritual, physical, and emotional needs.

Looking Forward with Gratitude

The success of Brushstrokes & Blessings wouldn’t have been possible without your support. Thank you once again for believing in our vision and helping us raise over $35,000! This incredible amount will directly impact the lives of countless young people.
