Community Child Care Council is about fostering healthy and fit children, stronger families and empowered child care providers.

The Community Child Care Council (4C's) of Alameda County is excited to announce that on Saturday, May 4, 2013, it will host a 40th Anniversary Gala to benefit children and family programs in Alameda County. The organization has selected Oakland's delightfully picturesque Chabot Space & Science Center as the venue for the black-tie affair. The evening will include an exciting live auction and raffles, in addition to dinner, dancing and award presentations.

Also, during the fundraising event, 4C's will present awards to three (3) outstanding individuals and an organization in recognition of their exceptional commitment to children and families. The special honorees are Michael A. LeNoir, M.D., President-elect, National Medical Association; George Halvorson, President & CEO, Kaiser Permanente; Kristina Adams, President-elect, California Child Development Administrators Association; and the Golden State Warriors Community Foundation.

4C's Executive Director, Renee S. Herzfeld said, "This 40th anniversary fundraiser will provide resources which will enable 4C’s to continue building a health community thru providing child care referrals, education, nutrition services and qualified child care payment assistance. Our goal for the future is to raise funds so that 4C’s can be innovative in creating and delivering exemplary family support programs that enrich our diverse community."

Gala chair, attorney Shonda Mosby agrees, “4C’s is about fostering healthy and fit children, stronger families and empowered child care providers. We look forward to celebrating 40 years of service while recognizing the outstanding contributions of our amazing and most deserving honorees."

Oakland Raiders team physician and surgeon, Dr. Warren J. Strudwick, will be the evening host and auctioneer. Executive Chef Reign Free's Red Door Catering Company will provide an amazing menu for guest dining. The gala’s official wine sponsor, Mark Blanchard, owner/vintner of Blanchard Family Wines, said he is delighted to support 4C’s in its efforts to strengthen programs for families and children. Blanchard Family Wines is a small boutique winery in Sonoma County and was founded by two brothers with a shared passion for artisan wines.

Among the amazing items to be auctioned will be a private dinner for 10 prepared in the home of the successful bidder, featuring culinary creations by Chef Raymond Nottie (corporate chef for Goggle, Facebook and PeopleSoft), paired with a delightful blending of wines from the Blanchard Family Winery.
