Thank You for Fall Fête

Dear Friends of the SDCC:

Many thanks to all who attended Fall Fête and donated time and money to make this year’s event successful. With your support, we raised over $60,000 to support the Center. All event profits directly support the Center’s operations where children receive top-level academic tutoring and social learning. We are proud of the Center’s results for the last marking period of the 2009 school year –- 100% of students had passing grades, and 76% of students had A and B grades after attending the Center for at least one year.


We feel that education breaks the cycle of poverty and empowers students to be productive citizens who contribute to our community. As Arne Duncan so honestly stated in his speech at the event, “I can’t tell you how important the lessons of the Sue Duncan Children’s Center are for the entire country. If every child had the kind of structure, the kind of support, and the kind of high expectations the children there receive everyday, our country would be in a much, much better place.” We agree.

The Center is off to a busy start for the 2010 school year, and like the past few years the Center is at capacity. We look forward to providing you updates on this school year as we make progress. Next year marks the Center’s 50th anniversary and we’ve got big ideas and big plans. Stay tuned for future communications regarding events and celebrations!

Thank you for your continued support.
