Record-breaking event!
We welcomed nearly 300 guests at our Annual Awards Breakfast on Friday June 3rd, sponsored in part by Polaris Properties.

In addition to hearing about the accomplishments and inspirations of our Champions for Children and Joey Award winners, highlights included a special “interruption” of our Board president’s speech by 10-year-old Isaiah, who posed some tough questions about the importance of quality early care; a moving story about a mom and two young children who were helped through a crisis as part of our Babies Step forward program; our first-ever silent auction; and a very generous $10,000 matching gift donation from an anonymous Board member.

A tremendous “thank you” to all of the attendees, sponsors, award winners and supporters who helped make the event so special – for recognizing the importance of creating a better future for Westchester's children through quality early care and education.
