On June 13th, friends and supporters from all over globe gathered at Wheelock College to honor outgoing Executive Director Susan Linn for founding and sustaining CCFC the past 15 years.
The evening included lots of commercial-free entertainment with performances by the Revels Kids and a special sing-along for Susan.
Longtime friends and colleagues, including Kevin Hepner, Alvin F. Poussaint, Diane Levin, Michele Simon, Ana Lúcia Villela, and Josh Golin, gave moving tributes to Susan.
Bill Isler of the Fred Roger Company then led a surprise presentation of the Fred Rogers Integrity Award, given by CCFC to the public figure whose efforts to protect children from harmful marketing best embody Mr. Rogers’ long-standing commitment to nurturing the health and well-being of America’s children. The evening concluded with a moving farewell by Susan and her puppet Audrey Duck.
