More than 200 attend Family Connections benefit

More than 200 guests attended the Night of Dreams benefit Feb. 26 at the Sharon Heights Golf and Country Club, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Family Connections, a free preschool for low-income families, with locations in East Palo Alto, eastern Menlo Park, and Redwood City. The evening raised more than $60,000.

The event honored three important supporters: Little Wonders, a play-based, parent-participation program; the Sequoia District Adult School; and Chris Adair, director of the San Carlos Education Foundation's Spring Fling.

Family Connections was founded in 1993 and has helped more than 1,000 families with early childhood education.
