Child Care Council Inc., a nonprofit that connects families with child care, will hold its annual Start Bright Gala from 6 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 16 at Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford.
The event celebrates the importance of quality child care and early education in ensuring children get a bright start to the future.
During the gala, the council will present its Start Bright Impact Awards to honor outstanding child care providers and early educators. The council will recognize Assemblywoman Jamie Romeo, D-136th District, as its Distinguished Civic Leader of the Year for being a champion of child care issues on the state and local levels, as well as St. Ann’s Community as the Innovative Employer of the Year for providing free summer camp for employees’ children.
