Please share your playful hearts and join the Phoenix Philanthropists for a very fun evening interacting with children in St. Vincent de Paul's Dream Center. As families come to dine, volunteers will welcome children to the delightful Dream Center then help them with homework and engage them in wonderful activities, including reading, games, and art & science projects. Make a difference enriching the lives of others, while bringing smiles and happiness to little faces, and having a truly joyous time.
