This summer, the Center for Creative Education (CCE) will be opening our new campus at 2400 Metrocentre Boulevard in West Palm Beach. The Catalfumo Family Campus will feature two buildings. The first, which opens this summer, will house The Foundations School and our administrative space. The second, which is slated to open in 2023, will be the Susan and Dom Telesco Arts and Science Center.
This past Saturday, at our annual fundraiser, A Colorful Evening To Remember, Milly and Patrick Park generously donated $100,000 to our capital campaign in honor of their friends, Susan and Dom Telesco. This brings our capital campaign one step closer to our goal of raising $20 million; we’re currently over halfway there, with more than $10 million raised.
Earlier this year, the Telescos donated $2 million to name the Arts and Science Center which will house our theater, art studios, science labs, and more. They also recently hosted a cocktail party at their residence to generate excitement for our annual fundraiser, with the goal of sharing CCE’s accomplishments and goals for the future. Their generosity will continue to have an impact in the Palm Beaches for generations to come.
We are honored to have Irene and Jim Karp serve as co-chairs of our capital campaign. Other prominent donors include Sallie Korman, Michele and Jim Kukla, Tamara and Bruce Watkins, Herbert J. and Beverly J. Myers Charitable Foundation, The Catalfumo Family Foundation, Betsy and James Meany, Blue Sea Capital, Eric Telchin, Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation, Split Rock Charitable Foundation, Edith R. Dixon, Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, and Ben Starling.
We are so grateful to these donors who have brought us one step closer to creating a new, innovative campus for our students and our community. To learn more about our capital campaign, our new campus, and how you can get involved with CCE, click here.
