From the whole Start Early team (formerly known as the Ounce), our sincere gratitude for joining us for our Annual Luncheon. We were honored to share “Tomorrow’s Hope,” which was generously created and produced by the Saul Zaentz Charitable Foundation. Thank you to our event’s presenting sponsor Peoples Gas, our many other generous sponsors and the Zaentz Foundation for helping make our in-person event possible during these uncertain times.

We hope the film provided inspiration and reassurance as you witnessed how unwavering resilience, parent engagement and early learning experiences can make a difference for every child, especially in times of adversity.

Thank you to our 2020 Annual Luncheon
