Washington (CNN) – Hillary Clinton, Sonia Sotomayor and Julian Castro will appear together in New York City on Friday as part of Dream Big Day at the Bronx Children's Museum.
Earlier this summer, Sotomayor surprised the former secretary of state during a book signing Clinton held at a Costco in Northern Virginia. The Supreme Court justice and Clinton shared a few words and held each others hand while they chatted.
Castro, who served three terms as mayor of San Antonio, Texas, was recently confirmed as the secretary of housing and urban development. He is widely considered a rising star in the Democratic Party and some even say a potential vice presidential candidate in 2016 – the same year polling shows Clinton as the overwhelming frontrunner for the party's presidential nomination.
Dream Big is a summer academic program run through the museum that uses art to inspire 120 second and third graders from a number of different Bronx neighborhoods.
Sotomayor, who was raised in the Bronx and jokingly says she prefers to be referred to as “Sonia from the Bronx,” has been involved since the start of the program five years ago and invited Clinton and Castro to attend Friday's final presentation, according to Carla Precht executive director of the Bronx Children's Museum.
“She has been at our Dream Big event every year for five years,” Precht said. “For the kids, this is their dream big celebration day.”
During the event, Precht said that students will display what they had learned and perform for Sotomayor, Clinton and the other dignitaries. Precht said that Sotomayor and Clinton would deliver short remarks that will be geared towards the children.
