Tapestry Graphic

Thank you to all of the sponsors, supporters, volunteers and everyone who bought tickets to our primary fundraiser, Tapestry.  A particular honorable mention goes to our title sponsor, Silverberg Group who committed to the vision of this event and supported it whole heartedly.  I think we can all agree it was a wonderful evening celebrating the unique cultures of ABC Head Start's children and families.  I heard from many it was a unique experience and one that they will be looking forward to each year.  Stay tuned to our website as we post pictures and highlights from the event.
