Vail Daily letter: Family Learning Center thanks you for your generosity

Thank you for your generosity

Dear community friends: The Family Learning Center is pleased to announce that our major fundraiser was an enormous success. All proceeds from the “Tee-Off” Cocktail Party in Lake Creek and the 15th annual Barbara Treat Memorial Golf Tournament at the Club at Cordillera benefit Family Learning Center’s early-childhood education and child-care programs.

Like so many of the amazing organizations in Eagle County’s nonprofit sector, Family Learning Center relies on the generosity of its donors, special events and foundation funding to operate. Family Learning Center is dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable early-childhood education programs to all families, regardless of financial standing.

To date, 79 percent of Family Learning Center families receive tuition assistance and more than 65 percent of our students are second-language learners. Thanks to support from our community sponsors and the nurturing, innovative and personalized approach that Family Learning Center’s dedicated staff displays in the classroom, each and every one of our students enters kindergarten prepared for success.

In addition to the event’s three title sponsors (Fredman Family Foundation, Vanessa Kerzner and Daniel Heard), Family Learning Center would like to acknowledge and thank the following people and organizations for their support and assistance with this year’s fundraiser:
