CCE LUNCHEON POURED WITH CREATIVITY

 

 

 

 
(PALM BEACH) – A little rain didn’t stop the Center for Creative Education (CCE) from entertaining more than 250 guests at the annual Spring Luncheon.  On March 10 when the clouds parted, guests were treated to an afternoon of lunch, art and dessert at the home of CCE’s honorary chairman, Kenn Karakul. 
 
The sun really came out as a tiny but powerful speaker,
10-year-old Shilah James from Wynnebrook Elementary School spoke to Luncheon guests about what she has learned through CCE in her
after-school programming.  As she related some of the creative writing vocabulary words she learned to protagonists and antagonists in the Cat and the Hat, her mother praised CCE and the way they were creatively opening her daughter’s mind to a new passion as a writer! 
 
In welcoming the crowd, Kenn Karakul likened the afternoon’s weather to the stormy education system.  “Just like the sun coming out today, CCE is such a bright spot in the lives of so many Palm Beach County students.  The work we are doing in arts integration is so important.  Students like Shilah are finding new passions thanks to our artists.”
 
The not-for-profit Center for Creative Education uses the arts
to enrich and transform children’s educational experience. The arts are infused into classroom curriculum and after-school settings to enhance
the teaching of traditional academic subjects – improving each child’s learning potential and academic performance,  increasing overall enthusiasm about school and shaping more productive, responsible community members that exercise creative problem solving throughout life.  CCE’s newest program, Project GROW focuses on teaching students artful and hands-on ways to have a positive and healthy body and mind. 
 
“By highlighting Project GROW programming, guests were able to see and do what our teaching artists are doing everyday with the children in Palm Beach County schools,” said Tom Pilecki, CCE executive director.  “The afternoon turned out to be beautiful and we were grateful to have so many supportive friends with us.  The children who spoke really showed guests what CCE is all about!”
 
Grand sponsor for the Luncheon was Pauline Pitt.  Platinum sponsor was Paula and Bob Butler.  Benefactor Sponsors were Eric and Fuzzy Billings; Gina Borman; Michael and Barbara Crimi; Joyce Erato; Emila Fanjul; Gentlemen of the Garden; Merle Goldsdtein; Cheryl Gowdy; Jerre Gowdy; Kate Gubelmann; Vicki Halmos; Mark Janecki; Kenn Karakul and Jim Held; Jim and Irene Karp; Neil and Luiza Kozokoff; Anita and Sam Michaels; Brad and Pam Miller; Gina Mortara; Lucy Musso; Kit Pannill; E. Burke Ross, Jr.; Percy Steinhart and US Trust.
 
The CCE Spring Luncheon committee members included:
Marianne “Fuzzy” Billings, Paula Butler, Cheryl Gowdy, Sara Groff,
Vicki Kellogg, Margaret Luce, Gina Mortara, Danielle Ortiz, Debbie Pucillo, Diann Scaravilli, Mary Stanton, Sonja Stevens, Frances Webster, Elizabeth Wetherell, along with CCE board host committee Vicki Halmos, Margie Larkin and Pam Miller.
 
For information on the Center for Creative Education programming or upcoming events including Little Pink Dress “Ultimate Girls Night Out” to Benefit the Center for Creative Education on May 3rd, please call  (561) 805-9927, or visit www.cceflorida.org.
