United Bank Instills Hope  

as 2021 Building Futures Award Sponsor  


CONWAY, SC – May 15, 2021 – A Father’s Place is pleased to announce United Bank as the “While We Breathe, We Hope” sponsor for the 3rd Annual Building Futures Awards Banquet & FUNdraiser. 


“Spiritual and emotional poverty can be so much worse than physical pain,” said Lyn Rumage, Senior Director of Development for A Father’s Place. “Too often, fathers come to us without hope for the future. They don’t believe in themselves; they don’t believe things will get better. Our team of incredibly compassionate and highly trained intervention specialists work to quickly restore hope through a myriad of methods, including affirmations, counseling, success stories, goal-setting and prayer. United Bank’s sponsorship not only highlights the importance of hope, but tells these men that people they haven’t met yet believe in them. That is worth its weight in gold.” 


“United Bank is proud to partner with A Father’s Place through sponsorship, volunteer efforts and financial literacy activities,” remarked Jerry Jenerette, United Bank’s Market President. “A Father’s Place leads by example by providing hope and resources to fathers so that they are then able to provide positive and reliable support to their families and the community.”  


Building Futures will be held on October 7, 2021, at the Barefoot Conference Center in North Myrtle Beach from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will honor local residents and organizations who do extraordinary work to help others. The event, affectionately known locally as BFA, will also feature a silent auction, entertainment and gourmet meal. 


United Bank joins more than a dozen other local companies that really care about the communities in which they operate and their employees and customers live. Only a handful of specialty sponsorships remain including Unconditional Love, Healthy Fathers = Healthy Families and Raise Your Voice For Families (silent auction). For additional information contact Lyn Rumage, lrumage@scfathersandfamilies.com or 201-562-5003.
