The Fun Time Early Childhood Academy held its annual fundraising Gala, “Treasures of the Sea,” on Feb. 13 at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. The event raised more than $300,000 to help The Academy provide quality early childhood education for children of low-income working families who are entering kindergarten. NBC2 anchor and long-time Fun Time supporter Stacey Deffenbaugh welcomed the sellout crowd of over 300 guests. Guest auctioneer Mayor Bill Barnett hosted the live auction.
