FFCDC to trans­form ‘Wee Dreams’ Dec. 5 at Boca West Coun­try Club

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

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.
