BENEFIT HONORS JIM, DONNA GOTTLIEB
On Saturday May 29th 2015 Family Network held its annual benefit “Rockin' Fiesta Fundraiser” at The Highland Park Country Club. This Mexican Fiesta meets Rock 'n Roll themed event was greatly enjoyed by all those who attended. Entertainment was provided by El Trio De Dos and Dr. Mudd, a rock and roll band made up of teachers from Highland Park High School. The 103 attendees raised over $25,000 to support Family Network’s programs and services. Family Network presented its annual Martha Freeman Friend of The Family Award to Donna and Jim Gottlieb for their exceptional support for our Right From The Start Program and its Community Partnership award to Moraine Township for their longstanding collaboration with Family Network as well as their outstanding commitment to supporting and strengthening local families in need. Family Network is especially grateful to The First Bank of Highland Park for generously sponsoring this event and to all those that made financial and in-kind donations that support its programs and services.
Family Network a Family Focus center, was founded in 1983 in Highland Park by early childhood professionals seeking to connect young children and families with one another to help reduce isolation, build friendships and establish a supportive community network. Family Network has three distinct programs serving young children and families including: their Parent/Child Center serving parents and children from birth through age 4, The Right From The Start Program that serves Spanish speaking families and The After School Activity Program that serves elementary age students that attend five local elementary schools.
