On September 30th under sunny skies and with much generosity the 4th Annual MCE Foundation Golf Tournament began with a 1pm Shot Gun start at Masonboro Country Club in Wilmington NC. Sixteen teams participated and many sponsors and donators helped us raise Dollars 4 Small Scholars.
The winning prize results and the list of our many supporters are on the 2011 Golf page. Visit it again soon to see pictures of the day’s fun courtesy of Dana Jackson Photography.

From the development director’s desk:
To stay current on the state of early childhood education I rely on two very important websites. Pre-K Now and National Institute for Early Education Research. Pre-K Now is a project of the Pew Center on the States and NIEER is the research program of Rutgers Graduate School of Education. Together they disseminate, educate, and elevate the importance to support high quality, effective early childhood education for all young children.
Here at our foundation it is the published research data and resources that both of these organizations provide that help us continue to promote our mission. Subscribing to their newsletters and email updates are very useful tools for me.
I know that when I write a fund-raising letter, or a proposal to the Board of Directors, and list benefits for awarding PRE-K scholarships and ask our patrons for more money and directors for more time that the facts are there. That there is a large community of support that I can rely on. As Hillary coined…"It’s takes a community to raise a child".
Thanks for your continued support.

Azalea Festival 2011 April 9-10th, Wilmington, NC
Here in our backyard was the perfect opportunity to build awareness for the foundation. Ed Kaczynski, foundation founder, worked diligently to talk to as many of the 30,000 or more people that stroll the festival as he could.
We raised some Dollars for Small Scholars along the way!
