Wonderland Developmental Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, located in Shoreline, dedicated to serving children ages birth to six years in north King and south Snohomish counties with developmental delays and disabilities.

May 21 was their annual fundraising day, with a golf tournament during the day, followed by a dinner and auction in the evening.

Cloudy skies didn’t dampen the spirits of the full field of 144 golfers for the 17th Annual JVH Memorial Golf Tournament on May 21st.

Immediately following the awards ceremony, 175 guests moved on to the Wonderland Dinner and Auction.

Guests learned about Petra, a Wonderland client born with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI, otherwise known as Brittle Bone disease) to remind us all why Wonderland's work is so vital to our children and families throughout their lives. See more about Petra here.

Together these events raised more than $97,000, surpassing their fundraising goal. 

Wonderland is extremely grateful to the sponsors, golfers, donors, auction winners, volunteers, and others whose generous contributions made it possible for Wonderland to continue to serve even more children and families!
