NAPLES, Fla. - Nov. 29, 2016 - PRLog -- Collier Child Care Resources (CCCR) has recently  announced  Lisa Gruenloh, President of Purpose Journey, Inc. and Kathy Bamberg, Account Executive with Lutgert Insurance will serve as co-chairs of its annual luncheon event Big Impressions by Little Artists to be held on Friday, May 5, 2017 at the Hilton Naples from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Gruenloh and Bamberg are known for their deep commitment to helping others in the community. With the support of the members of the event committee, they will spearhead CCCR's effort to help increase the event's visibility and encourage participation in CCCR's fifth consecutive biggest fundraiser of the year.

"We are honored to have Lisa Gruenloh and Kathy Bamberg as co-chairs of our event this year," said Niccole Howard, CCCR's Executive Director.  "With their deep understanding of our mission, and the needs to be met, particularly in our early childhood education programs, I'm confident that we will have one of the most successful events thus far."

With the theme of artwork inspired by the natural environment, the creations by the children of CCCR's early childhood development programs, works of local artists and other items will be featured in live and silent auctions.  The event will also include the Family Friendly Business Awards, which recognizes local businesses that exemplify a family-friendly workplace.

The event is hosted by the CCCR Business 100, a group of local businesses that supports CCCR's mission and programs by making an annual donation to benefit its four child development programs.  Their donations help grant partial tuition assistance for the children of working parents who fall below the federal poverty level and cannot afford the cost of quality care and education and provides supplies and equipment.  CCCR operates two centers located in Naples, Child's Path (ages 2-5) and Little Wonders (ages 1-5); and two A Step Up Child Development Centers located at Golden Gate and Immokalee High Schools, for children (ages birth-5 years) of teen parents who wish to complete their high school education without the concern of the cost of child care.

Ticket cost is $75. To purchase tickets, make a donation or learn more about CCCR, visit www.collierchildcare.orgor call 239-643-3908. For information on sponsorship opportunities please contact Dianne Reed at
