ANDRUS Premiers “Friends” Movie Featuring AELC Students
It was a full house on Saturday, June 20th when children and families walked the red carpet and gathered at the ANDRUS Early Learning Center (AELC) to catch the world premiere of “Friends,” a motion picture based on the Eric Carle book of the same name and featuring the young students of the AELC.
The rain held off long enough so that participants during ANDRUS’ Annual Golf Fore Kids Outing were able to play their 18 holes in support of the nonprofit’s work with children and families throughout the New York metro area.
The event took place on Monday, June 8 at the Ardsley Country Club in Ardsley-on-the-Hudson, and raised $155,125 to benefit the organization.
