Apr 16, 2012 10:20AM ● Published by tina

Speaking at The Parenting Center's annual "Building Strong Families" luncheon on April 5 was keynote speaker Pat Williams, Co-Founder and Vice President of the NBA’s Orlando Magic and father of 19 (14 adopted) on the seven keys to unlocking leadership potential in children.

The Parenting Center presented its Hand-in-Hand Awards to those who have embodied the agency's mission of Providing Families the Tools to Succeed: Dr. Tom Rogers, Jr.,  pediatrician with Cook Children's Hospital, Reverend Dr. Warner Leslie Bailey, retired Presbyterian minister, and Mr. Whitney Smith, president and founder of The Whitney Smith Company, Inc.  Valleau Wilkie, Jr., retired executive vice president of the Sid W. Richardson Foundation also received special recognition for his years of support to The Parenting Center's mission.

Luncheon attendees showed support of children and families at The Parenting Center by purchasing autographed copies of Pat Williams’ books and raffle items, which included packages such as a family Orlando trip, tickets to a Rangers game, and dinner for six at Oliva Italian Eatery.

The estimated annual cost of child abuse and neglect in the United States is $104 billion. With funds raised at the luncheon, The Parenting Center will be able to provide more counseling and parent education to benefit generations of families now and in the future.
