The night you helped raise $300K for early childhood literacy ❤

Thanks to YOU little Israel and Mateo have developed a love of reading books about space! Your support brings their education to new heights!
Hi Friends of ADF!

Last month marked another successful gala in the books … for books! Thank you to all who attended, donated, and volunteered to make our 2019 Always Dream Gala a smashing success! Thanks to you, we raised more than $300,000 for the children and families we serve. 

Thank you for supporting early childhood literacy and allowing us to support more students like Mateo and Israel to ensure they are on the right path towards success in school and life.

We’re so grateful to have you in our Always Dream extended family. 

Thank you,
Kristi Yamaguchi
Always Dream Foundation
