Gala to celebrate high-quality child care

Child Care Council Inc. is gearing up for its 45th anniversary Start Bright Gala.

The event celebrates the importance of high-quality child care and early education in ensuring children get a bright start to the future. Founded in 1972, Child Care Council is a nonprofit that connects families with quality child care.

During the Oct. 18 gala, the council will present its Start Bright Impact Awards, which pay tribute to outstanding child care providers and early educators. The council also will recognize Fausto Prattico, principal of Lavoro Group, as the business leader of the year; and Mike Kramer as the volunteer of the year.

The event will feature a silent auction, raffles, a magician and games. Gala proceeds benefit the council’s Start Bright scholarship program, which supports the organization’s early childhood quality enhancement programs for providers and staff.

Registration for the event can be found at childcarecouncil.com.
