WCL-Gala

The Whole Child Leon Board of Directors invites you to join us for a virtual experience on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, from 7-8 pm, to celebrate and recognize the winners of our inaugural awards program. We will honor two Warriors for Children, an Innovative Collaborative and a Family-Friendly Employer. Each of these honorees are making a true impact on our young children and their families in Leon County and while it is our desire to host this event in person, we have several surprises to make the virtual event an experience you will not want to miss.

The event is paired with a SILENT AUCTION to support the continued work of Whole Child Leon to build a community where everyone works together to make sure ALL children thrive.

Formal top preferred; pajama bottoms encouraged. RSVP

On Thursday, September 24, 2020, our community will host the 6th Annual Summit on Children. This community-driven, now all virtual, event was created to increase public/private business awareness, engagement and investment in early childhood programs that yield better outcomes for children and families, and ultimately the future of Leon County.

Over the course of five years, nearly 4,500 community members, including business owners, pediatricians, law enforcement, attorneys, judges, mental health providers, university faculty, district school administrators, childcare providers, child advocates, and the faith-based community have participated in Summit related events, learning from national and regional experts on best practices related to childhood success.

We have a spectacular line up of speakers and panelists and are thankful to our many sponsors and partners. Download Event Program
