FFCDC to transform ‘Wee Dreams’ Dec. 5 at Boca West Country Club
Florence Fuller Child Development Centers’ (FFCDC) largest annual fundraising event, the “Wee Dream Ball,” will take place Dec. 5 at BocaWest Country Club.
This year’s theme focuses on transformation as expressed through the butterfly.
Last year, the event hosted 350 guests and raised more than $400,000 for disadvantaged children. FFCDC’s goal is to surpass last year’s fundraising efforts to continue to provide and expand their programs for children and families.
This event is spearheaded by community philanthropists and contributors of the Centers Peg and Lee Greenspon. The Greenspons have been working to raise community awareness for services provided by the organization.
“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart. This is exactly the way we feel when we spend time with the children at Florence Fuller,” said Peg and Lee.
This year’s Honorary Chairs, Jo Ann and Philip Procacci, have taken a personal interest in the students and the Centers’ programs, particularly in the Adopt-a-Class program.
