Davidson Cornelius Child Development Center (DCCDC) Fundraising Breakfast

by | Oct 17, 2022

“It Takes a Village” placemats designed by DCCDC kids were on the tables at the breakfast.


The theme of this year’s DCCDC Fundraising Breakfast on October 7 was “It Takes a Village,”  The message attendees received was the importance of our community supporting local children and families to create the best long-term outcomes.

Since 1969, the mission of DCCDC has been to provide high-quality, affordable early education and care for any child of our community without regard to race, ethnicity, religion, or socioeconomic status and to embrace and foster diversity in a safe learning environment.

Davidson Cornelius Child Development Center is the only local non-profit serving the needs of working parents who are challenged to afford safe, quality childcare during the day. The Center provides childcare scholarships to working families with the ultimate goal of bolstering the health and confidence of children in their impressionable years before elementary school.

DCCDC has hosted a fundraising breakfast for ten years to raise money in order to ensure the future success of children in our community.  This year’s breakfast was the first “in person” event since Covid.  It was great to be with DCCDC Employees and Board Members to learn more about the wonderful work DCCDC does in our community.

Anna Eaton, DCCDC Executive Director, spoke about the inspiring work the Center is doing with its children.  Anna praised Betsey Verhey, Nutrition Specialist and Chef, for her love of cooking and children.  We then heard from Ms. Candace, a Pre-K s Classroom Co-Lead Teacher who has been with DCCDC for many years and has had such an important influence on many children’s lives.  Board Chair, Tara Ashcraft, explained the importance of DCCDC in the lives of the children and their families.

DCCDC Board Members include Tara Ashcraft, Kate Barr, Jessica Casavecchia, Susan Cooke, Misty Davis, Lacey Dellinger, Dick Hills, Ann McCorvey, and Eleanor Young.
