Since 2009, our Elegant Evening of Gospel & Benefit Gala has raised significant funds toward tuition assistance and scholarships.
This fundraising effort helps continue our mission to support the needs of families in our community.
This event features our Hall Of Fame “Acorn to an Oak Tree” Award which recognizes an alumnus of the Fourth Street Day Care and Academy. This recognition honors a graduate of the center who has grown up to accomplish positive things in the community, and has shown great promise and potential for leadership.
It is our belief that quality child care is the foundation for all young children. This event and recognition helps provide significant revenue in continuing our mission to assist families in the community with tuition costs, and helps acorns to become oak trees.
