Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - On The Scene -

When the com­mit­tee plan­ning the 2008 Wee Dream Ball, slated for De­cem­ber 5 at Wood­field Coun­try Club, an­nounced a “Wildest Dreams” Auc­tion and Ul­ti­mate Sports Raf­fle, they were not ex­ag­ger­at­ing. Co-Chairs Kathy and Paul Ad­kins and Denise and Jor­dan Zim­mer­man are proud to release ex­cit­ing de­tails on two of the many stun­ning prize pack­ages that will help pro­vide cru­cial fund­ing for the chil­dren of the Florence Fuller Child De­vel­op­ment Cen­ters (FFCDC).

To whet your “Wildest Dreams” ap­petite, Lynn Hover, Vice Pres­i­dent/Gen­eral Man­ager of Neiman Mar­cus, has cre­ated the “Cin­derella” Live Auc­tion Pack­age that will in­clude: A $10,000 di­a­mond and onyx neck­lace from the col­lec­tion of renowned de­signer Zydo; a pair of de­signer shoes ev­ery month for 12 months to sat­isfy your in­ner Fash­ion­ista; lunch for you and a friend at Mari­posa Restau­rant at Neiman Mar­cus ev­ery month for a year; and you can let your beauty shine through with monthly fa­cials for an en­tire year.

The Ul­ti­mate Sports Raf­fle is truly an un­be­liev­able dream come true. You can win two VIP tick­ets to five of the na­tion’s top sport­ing events: Sun­day at the 2009 Mas­ters; the 2010 Su­per Bowl in Mi­ami; the 2009 NBA Fi­nal Game; the 2009 World Se­ries Fi­nal Game; and the 2009 NHL Stan­ley Cup Fi­nal Game. There will be only 250 op­por­tu­ni­ties to win this once-in-a-life­time prize so the odds are in your fa­vor.

Th­ese car­ing in­di­vid­u­als and com­pa­nies are help­ing to change chil­dren’s lives.”

The Wee Dream Ball, with the theme “Big Hearts Help­ing Lit­tle Ones”, was listed as one of the top 10 events in Palm Beach County boast­ing a high-en­ergy at­mos­phere filled with din­ing, danc­ing and great fun.

Denise Zim­mer­man, who chaired the 2007 event and is a co-chair this year, said “Guests who at­tended last year will be ex­cited to see some of the el­e­ments they have en­joyed in the past, but they should also ex­pect new sur­prises and not-to-be-missed prizes. With two-thirds of the tick­ets al­ready gone, this is again the hottest evening in town.”

The FFCDC mis­sion is to make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence in the lives of young chil­dren from eco­nom­i­cally chal­lenged fam­i­lies in our com­mu­nity. Florence Fuller Child De­vel­op­ment Cen­ters pro­vide qual­ity child­care, early ed­u­ca­tion, fam­ily sup­port pro­grams and the only Head Start preschool in Boca Ra­ton. We pre­pare chil­dren for a life­time com­mit­ment to learn­ing and so­cial achieve­ment, while em­pow­er­ing their fam­i­lies to build a brighter fu­ture.
