Letter to the Editor
Friday, Jan. 11, 2013, 8:58 p.m.

On behalf of the planning committee for the 2012 Share the Spirit event, we offer heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped our Dec. 8 celebration at Uniontown's State Theatre shatter a $10,000 fundraising goal.

All direct donations were allocated to the American Heart Association, Boy Scouts of America, Rotary International, State Theatre and Dowling Family Fund for Community Improvement according to the wishes of our donors.

More than 200 guests opened their hearts for our nonprofit partners while enjoying the music of Abacus Jones (performance sponsored by David and Darla Dowling) and donated gourmet hors d'oeuvres.

One addition to the party this year was WTAE-TV's Mike Clark. Terry Cellurale made the visit possible.

Thanks also to another special guest, Santa, and his helper, Gary Carter.

Many thanks as well to our refreshment sponsors for a once-in-a-lifetime smorgasbord: Belmont Inn, Uniontown Boston Beanery, Darby's, DiMarco's Bistro, Ellie Mae's Catering, The Grotto, Hartsek Catering, Myers Catering, Rizz's, Sun Porch, War Eagle Rations and Matthew and Rebecca Dowling.

Finally, thanks to business partners Coordinated 360, Mundel's Furniture and Stefano's Printing, and event sponsors Attorney Linda Cordaro, Stephen and Nancy Kezmarsky, state Rep. Tim Mahoney and attorney Wendy O'Brien.

We asked you to give of yourselves, and you answered the call. Let's carry this spirit of goodwill throughout the new year. Visit us online at and join our committee by emailing

Matthew & Rebecca Dowling
