EVENTS SUPPORTING CHILDREN FIRST

The annual fundraisers for Children First are more than a fun afternoon or evening event. The generosity of sponsors and guests bring much-needed funding for the organization's programs serving vulnerable children and their families. These events are also a way to spread the word about the value of early education and family strengthening services, highlighting the successes of those who have come through our program.
We hope you will join us at one - or more - of the following events!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AT THESE RECENT EVENTS!



Thank you to all who joined us for Flip Flops & Fashion at Sharky's on the Pier! Attendees enjoyed dazzling views of the Gulf, tropical fare, and supported at-risk children and families in our community. We saw fashionable finds from L. Boutique, Scout & Molly's, and Sun Bug modeled by Children First supporters. Thank you to our sponsors and event co-chairs Faith Goldman, Lisa Jackson, Andrée Keebaugh and Vanessa Opstal!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the 5th Annual Rockin' Lobster beach party supporting Children First! Guests watched the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico while dining on delicious Maine Lobster under a large tent on the beach. The Rockin' fun began with live music by Version 3.0, delicious food, a silent auction, and exciting beach activities and ended with a lantern release, as we made a wish for a child and family in our program and release a lantern in their honor. Thank you to our sponsors and event co-chairs Lisa & John Giglio, Adrienne & Keith Johnson, Pat Martin, and Jackie & Jim Rolfes
