At the beautiful home of Manmeet and Paul Likhari on an idyllic day last week on May 8th, there was a festive celebration with hats, gloves and the best of support for the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center that has its capital campaign well underway. This was the 10th Annual Fort Bend Spring Brunch chaired by Debbie Fash, Jan Leaman, Rachel Leaman, and Charlene Pate. Henry Yau, who does PR for the Children’s Museum of Houston, reports that the event was a resounding success having raised more than $15,000 for the Museum’s Outreach Programs in Fort Bend County. It was a moment to focus on the efforts to make the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center a reality for the Summer of 2015.
At the brunch, the Children’s Museum of Houston launched an impressive tile wall campaign to support the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center. Organizers detailed opportunities to purchase and paint personalized tiles that will take an honored place at the Discovery Center and there will also be a Grandparent’s Wall of Fame. In the end, the entire effort is about enriching the lives of the children in this area by expanding cultural and family oriented educational opportunities that instill life long lasting experiences about learning.
