Save the Date - Party like it’s 1988!

Join us for a 35th-anniversary celebration benefiting Storyteller Children’s Center.

Friday, October 6, 2023, at the Hilton Beachfront Resort


We are excited to honor Tiffany Foster for her steadfast commitment and support. Over 14 years, she has served as Board President, chaired countless galas, worked tirelessly on strategic planning and budgets, and today serves as our Advisory Board Chair. Her corporate savvy and innovative spirit have helped Storyteller expand and grow, while her charisma and compassion have inspired many others to get involved and make an impactful difference in our community.


We hope you will join us for this celebratory evening of warm breezes, tropical drinks, and dancing under the stars to the greatest hits of the 80s as we throw it back to the year Storyteller was founded – 1988! Your support helps to provide nutritious meals, on-site therapeutic care, and early childhood education to nearly 100 vulnerable children each year, including support services for their families. Together, we can break the cycle of poverty and trauma in our community.
