This fundraiser will help raise money for the Parent Education Program scholarship fund. Scholarships provide temporary financial support to families who are interested in our many early child development, enrichment, and parent-ed classes. Without this funding, families would not be able to participate and gain the educational and rich experiences that our programs provide. Our goal at this fundraiser is to to raise $10,000! We hope that your attendance and donations will help us reach and exceed our mission.

The Imagine the Impact brunch will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Heathman Hotel in Kirkland, Washington. Doors will open at 9:30 a.m., with the program beginning promptly at 10:00AM. You are invited to purchase a $60 ticket (or host an entire table).  Enjoy breakfast and bubbly while learning about:

Join early childhood music duo “Let Your Music Shine” with Lisa and Linda in this NEW Saturday series for preschoolers. In partnership with the Bellevue College Parent Education PAC (Parents Advisory Committee), this concert is the second offering in the 3-performance series. It provides sing-along, move-along music edutainment for the whole family.
In December, audiences will be treated to the very popular "Holiday Hooray,” a seasonal favorite, featuring the trumpet, trombone, and tuba, and special snowy sing-a-longs.

After 18 years on the Seattle Symphony Tiny Tots stage, Lisa and Linda are thrilled to partner with the Bellevue College Parent Education PAC. Their own seven sons were enrolled in these preschools, and now Lisa and Linda are very happy to give back to this organization that gives so much to families.

A portion of the proceeds from each ticket purchase will help fund scholarships for the classes in the Bellevue College Parent Education Co-op system. Scholarship tickets are available for the concerts.
