Events | 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!

Fairytale Ball

Michael's on East Ballroom

On April 10, we held our virtual Fairytale Ball: The Sparkle Within where we celebrated Children First's Diamond Anniversary! Through our one-of-a-kind virtual celebration, attendees ventured into the unknown alongside us as while experiencing fun, magic, and even a few surprises!

We are proud to share that with the help of our event sponsors, donors, and silent auction,
we raised nearly $370,000 for our children and families!

Thank you! Our families can follow their path to a bright, sparkling future like never before.
