Annual Luncheon

It’s Good Business to Invest in Young Children Annual Luncheon

More than 800 early childhood champions joined the Ounce at our annual luncheon on April 20, 2017. These business, civic and philanthropic leaders are united in our shared mission to help unlock the potential in all children to succeed in school and in life.

Keynote speaker Dr. Patricia K. Kuhl, co-director of the Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences at the University of Washington, is internationally recognized for her research on early language and brain development, and studies that show how young children learn. Dr. Kuhl showed attendees how research proves that early exposure to language alters the brain.

Nancy and Steve Crown served as co-chairs for the luncheon.
