Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - Scene & Be Seen -

Florence Fuller Child De­vel­op­ment Cen­ters (FFCDC) will host 350 guests at their an­nual “Wee Dream Ball” for danc­ing, din­ing and an auc­tion Dec. 13. The Il­lu­mi­nate Your Dreams themed event will take place at Bo­caWest Coun­try Club of Boca Ra­ton.

The gala will be co-chaired by FFCDC’s board mem­ber Robin Deyo and com­mu­nity vol­un­teer Terry Fedele who plan to raise more than $400,000 for at-risk chil­dren.

Boca Ra­ton phi­lan­thropist Chris­tine E. Lynn has been named hon­orary chair­woman.

“I am de­lighted to be this year’s hon­orary chair,” said Lynn. “I have sup­ported the Florence Fuller Child De­vel­op­ment Cen­ters through­out the years and feel very for­tu­nate to have known Florence Fuller and her pas­sion for chil­dren and fam­i­lies less for­tu­nate. I am­sure she is look­ing down at us and is quite con­tent in see­ing the won­der­ful work and care that the center con­tin­ues to do to­day.”

Florence Fuller Child De­vel­op­ment Cen­ters works to make a dif­fer­ence for eco­nom­i­cally chal­lenged chil­dren and fam­i­lies through ed­u­ca­tion.

“Re­search has proven that at-risk chil­dren who re­ceive early ed­u­ca­tion will have a greater like­li­hood to fin­ish high school and at­tend col­lege. I know vol­un­teer­ing my time and fi­nan­cial sup­port to the ’Wee Dream Ball’ will help Florence Fuller make a dif­fer­ence in our com­mu­nity,” said Deyo.

Fedele added, “I am very pas­sion­ate about ed­u­ca­tion and ap­pre­ci­ate the pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence and ser­vices FFCDC pro­vides to our com­mu­nity. The ’Wee Dream Ball’ pro­vides funds to sup­port this worth­while mis­sion and I am priv­i­leged to be a part of this en­deavor.” Tick­ets are $250.
