Week in McLean: Fundraiser Supporting Falls Church-McLean Children’s Center

A fundraiser will be held for the Falls Church-McLean Children’s Center on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Pulcinella Italian Host in McLean, announced the HBC Group (Keller Williams Realty), organizer of the monthly Community Charity Champions dining events. A silent auction will be part of the event.

Falls Church-McLean Children’s Center (the Children’s Center) will receive an estimated 70 percent of the proceeds from food and drink orders, as long as the diner brings the flyer for the event. Contact HBC Group at 703-734-0192 or visit www.HBCGroupKW.com to receive a flyer.

The Children’s Center is celebrating its 50th anniversary of providing an affordable, high-quality, year-round early education to children from low- and moderate income, working families. The nationally accredited preschool, located in a dedicated wing of Lemon Road Elementary School, each year guides 80 children, ages 2-5, to develop the full range of skills they need to be ready to achieve when they start kindergarten. The nonprofit, nondenominational preschool was established by members of 20 area faith groups to meet the need for affordable, full-time child care in 1968.

Sponsors of the event are: Karen Briscoe and Lizzy Conroy with the HBC Group of Keller Williams Realty, Marcus Simon with EKKO Title, Kevin Dougherty of Pillar to Post, Kathy and Justin Neal of The Neal Team/US Bank, Jim Harris of BOWA, The Greater McLean Chamber of Commerce, and Moe Jebal with Pulcinella Italian Host.
