The Campagna Center has been committed to fostering a positive environment for Alexandria’s children and families. Through effective and visionary leadership, The Center has responded to the changing needs of the community with quality programming and services. “Each year The Campagna Center must raise additional funds to close funding gaps that allow us to provide early childhood, youth development and services to adults that support self-sufficiency. As we brace for the adverse impact of sequestration on our early childhood programs, the success of this year’s event is especially important to us,” said Dr. Tammy L. Mann, President and CEO of The Campagna Center. Jennifer Peterson, Chair of the Junior Friends of The Campagna Center, comments: “the Junior Friends have worked diligently to make this the “must attend” event of the Spring! We look forward to seeing our
fellow Alexandrians in their best hats and bowties to benefit the children and families served by The Campagna Center”.
