Big hearts help little ones in Boca Raton
Just three years can change a child’s life. Surprisingly this critical period is not during university, high school or even middle school. According to research studies, it’s the years spent in a quality preschool that can influence the likelihood of a child attending a four-year college and even decrease the possibility of their becoming teen mothers. For 37 years, Florence Fuller Child Development Centers (FFCDC) in Boca Raton has worked to ensure that disadvantaged children in our community have the skills to reach their full potential.
As co-chairs for the 2008 Wee Dream Ball, taking place at Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton on Dec. 5, Denise and Jordan Zimmerman and Kathy and Paul Adkins, play a crucial role at FFCDC. Not only are they generous benefactors, but they also work to raise funds and community awareness of the critical services being provided to 600 children each year. Under their bold and creative leadership the 2008 Ball will provide over $400,000 for programs helping children aged four weeks to 11 years.
The Wee Dream Ball is as energetic and unique as the children it helps. This year’s live auction chairwoman, Peggy Henry, has created a series of exclusive experiences.
The Wee Dream Ball’s fast-moving program will again be anchored by Corey Saban, while DJ Sean will keep the guests on their feet. Ticket sales for this event have already exceeded last year.
