Collaborative for Children’s 35 Anniversary Gala
“A Night Celebrating Excellence”
Invest in the future of Houston’s youngest learners and join Collaborative for Children’s 35th Anniversary Gala Chairs, Patricia and Larry Campagna for “A Night of Excellence” as we honor Ginni and Richard Mithoff, long-time supporters of Collaborative for Children and passionate advocates for the education of young children.
The much-anticipated gala event will take place on Saturday, September 24, 2022 at The Royal Sonesta Hotel. A cocktail reception at 6pm followed by a fine-dining seated dinner and programming at 7pm. The evening will culminate with celebrating this momentous occasion to the sound of Doppelganger Band, a top pick Houston Band! The evening will highlight Collaborative’s Centers of Excellence, which utilizes a core curriculum with an innovative, hands-on approach that focuses on 21st century learning skills such as critical thinking, technology and problem-solving.
For 35 years, Collaborative for Children has worked to improve and strengthen the quality of early childhood education, especially in underserved Houston neighborhoods. Studies have shown that strengthening this system has a direct impact on the future school success of children. As we celebrate the work we have accomplished, we also understand there is still much more work to do. In Houston, 47% of children enter school lacking the basic skills to begin kindergarten. If these students fail, it directly affects each of us as there is no future work force, jeopardizing the economic health of our city.

Collaborative for Children was created in 1987 with a singular focus: to ensure that children get the learning opportunities they need at an early age so they can be prepared for whatever challenges tomorrow may hold. The organization believes strongly that every child deserves a chance to achieve their dreams, and Collaborative for Children provides next-generation skills and resources that give kids – all kids – a real shot at a future with hope, possibility, success, and fulfillment.
