SECOND ANNUAL BIRTH TO 22 BUSINESS BREAKFAST:
SHAPING OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE TOGETHER
Business Champion Awards to be announced at April 12 event
The alliance of Palm Beach County business and community partners supporting the healthy growth, development and education of children and youth will hold its second annual business update Friday, April 12, at the West Palm Beach Marriott.
Highlight of this sold-out event will be the announcement of the inaugural Business Champion Awards winners by Birth to 22: United for Brighter Futures. The awards honor small, medium and large for-profit businesses whose support helps improve child and youth outcomes in Palm Beach County.
Keynote speaker at the breakfast is Dr. John Stockwell, Executive Director of the Spartanburg Academic Movement in South Carolina (SAM). SAM is a non-profit organization and a community movement, similar to Birth to 22. SAM is a partnership of education, business, government, foundations, community and faith leaders working to ensure high levels of academic success for all children. Before leading SAM, Dr. Stockwell was chancellor of the University of South Carolina Upstate for 17 years.
“The businesses currently supporting Birth to 22 add an invaluable dimension to our collective impact efforts,” said Tammy Fields, Director of Palm Beach County’s Youth Services Department, and Lisa Williams-Taylor, CEO of Children’s Services Council. “Many view their participation as a sound investment made today—for compounded returns tomorrow.”
Proceeds of the event will benefit local non-profit organizations selected by the Business Champion Award winners.
