Your ticket purchase for the Ebony & Ivory Ball helps support the Uncle E Scholarship Fund.
Edward Turner, Jr. (“Uncle E” to all of his younger family and friends), was always a faithful Christian. At his home church (Center Church-Hartford), he was leader of the Youth Group. At the CT Conference of the United Church of Christ (UCC), he served on the Public Education Advocacy Team. For the Conference’s Hartford Association, he served on the Committee for Church and Ministry and as the organization’s Moderator He also developed very close relationships with many Hartford-area clergy.
In tribute to Edward’s commitment to the UCC, and especially to his unwavering support of young people, a group of his friends have come together to form: Dedicated Undertaking for Edward Turner, or DUET.
DUET has partnered with the CT Conference to create the “Uncle E Scholarship Fund.” This fund provides financial assistance enabling deserving young people in CT to attend the UCC’s biennial national conference (the General Synod). “The Ebony & Ivory Ball” is DUET’s annual fundraiser for the fund.
$30 of your ticket price is tax deductible. Additional contributions may be made at any time by sending a check to “Uncle E Scholarship Fund” at United Church Center, 125 Sherman St., Hartford, CT 06105.
We thank you for your interest and support.
