Florence Fuller Child Development Centers to illuminate dreams with gala
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.
