The Children's House community showed up in a big way for a family-friendly virtual event to celebrate and kick off our Bright Futures Fund. Jennifer Lake and Ryan Sullivan hosted the event live from TCH, Junior High student Eli Petty made special appearances, Lisa Thauvette led a dance party, and our Montessori Guides were highlighted as heroes of the pandemic in this special video:
We started off the evening needing to raise $25,000 to meet our $160,000 goal this year. Within the hours and days following the event, 55 families made gifts totaling $15,500. You can make a difference by adding your family's name to the list of Bright Futures Fund donors. Every gift of any size matters. Thank you!
