About The Ruby Peck Foundation for Children's Education:
The Ruby Peck Foundation for Children's Education is committed to the pursuit of knowledge and believes that a child's opportunity to learn and develop the gift of his or her imagination should not be limited by economic classifications, social status, physical challenges or geographical boundaries.
These core values are reflected in their deep commitment to support a broad base of children's programs that promote learning through creative education. By inspiring children to embrace the richness of their cultural and individual expressions today, the Ruby Peck Foundation can lay the foundation for tomorrow's dreamers, teachers, healers, leaders and visionaries.
Minyanville Media, Inc, an Emmy Award Winning financial media and production company, will once again serve as the primary sponsor of the seventh annual "Festivus" celebration on Friday, December 7th to benefit children's education. For more information, visit www.rpfoundation.org
