Thank you to everyone who joined us at the 12th Annual Champions for Children Awards Luncheon that was held on Monday, October 20, 2014. This event recognized the significant achievements of individuals, organizations and corporations dedicated to quality early care and education for New York City's children. We are extremely proud that Mayor de Blasio declared Monday October 20, 2014 as CCI Day.
