deal weather and a spectacular oceanfront setting welcomed guests to a cocktail reception at the home of Christine and Robert Stiller on Tuesday, January 17. The Stillers gathered their friends in honor of Opportunity Early Childhood Education & Family Center.
Guests mingled and dined poolside while learning more about Palm Beach’s oldest children’s charity. Opportunity, which has been providing developmental programs for the children of working families since 1939, starts construction on a new larger campus in the Westgate community this week.
“Christine and I attended a seminar on brain development in children and it really opened our eyes. The first five years of a child’s life are vital, what they are exposed to can help determine the course of their futures,” said Robert Stiller. “Opportunity has been involved in improving children’s lives through education for nearly 80 years, supporting their work supports our whole community.”
The Stillers and other Palm Beach residents have generously donated toward building Opportunity’s new 22,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. When complete, the new campus will allow the nonprofit to serve up to 285 under resourced children.
