“We Are Family” – The 2018 Children’s Choice Awards


The 2018 Children’s Choice Award is presented to the Bernard E. & Alba Witkin Charitable Foundation for their longstanding partnership, which has supported Saint Vincent’s Day Home in offering quality care and learning experiences for our children while giving families the assistance they need to succeed.

We are excited that the Foundation’s Executive Director, Kenneth Kuchman, a passionate advocate for the education of young children, in his own right will be accepting the award.

The mission of The Witkin Foundation is to support effective non-profit organizations that assist children in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, in the San Francisco East Bay Area.
