Brighton Center receives funding from Valero despite Valero Texas Open Cancellation

Valero Energy Corporation

Brighton was honored to be one of 53 local charities that received funding from Valero despite the Valero Texas Open cancellation, a major golf tournament that redistributes all of their earning back into the San Antonio Community. These funds will go directly to supporting Brighton’s Special Education Support Services program, a program that is committed to teaching parents about special education laws and serving as education advocates for children in the special education system. “Brighton’s Special Education Services program is 100% funded by community support and the Valero Texas Open is always one of our largest supporters of this program. We weren’t sure what this year’s contribution would look like given the pandemic and the golf tournament cancellation. We are so humbled by the commitment of Valero and their partners to still contribute to not just our non-profit but so many others despite the cancellation. These funds will go a long way to ensuring that children who receive special education services, especially as we face an unprecedented school year, have access to our advocate team and get the services and resources they need to be successful in school! – Katrina Campbell, Chief Development Officer

Brighton Center Early Childhood Education Program

“My daughter was at Brighton for almost three years. It was a great place for her that provided a positive learning environment and child-centered staff. My daughter learned empathy and acceptance from her peers and teachers. The center is NAEYC accredited and teachers are knowledgeable of developmentally appropriate practices. They truly care about the children and families with whom they work and provide valuable, timely information regarding your child’s growth/performance. Brighton staff always made us feel like a part of their family. I always felt comfortable asking questions and they were both inclusive of ideas I brought to them as a parent and responsive to my child’s needs. We left because my daughter entered Pre K at her public school. She is doing great because of the social, emotional, and academic preparation she received at Brighton Center. We miss everyone very much, and are grateful for everything they did for our family. We ❤️ Brighton and highly recommend it to anyone looking for an inclusive, child-centered day care and preschool.”
