The second annual Community Challenge was proud to present a check for $332,342 to the 40th Children’s Auction on December 10, 2021.  The Challenge is comprised of local businesses, organizations and friends and families who create teams and creatively fundraise their way to Closing Ceremonies, where coveted awards await the top teams in this friendly but spirited challenge. 

Be part of the 2022 Challenge!

Thanks for submitting!

Last year the Children’s Auction distributed $492,045 to 62 

charitable organizations serving children and families - providing food, clothing, shelter, hygienic needs and Christmas gifts; funding non-profits working to provide basic and extended services for children; funding capital initiatives that improve the lives of children; and funding educational and recreational opportunities for children that they could otherwise not afford. See entire list here.

 

It is all about raising money, giving children and families a helping hand and being part of something fun and exciting that makes a significant impact in our community.
