Since Connecting for Kids first began, we have provided education and support for thousands of families who have a concern about their child.

Our annual fundraiser not only highlights how important Connecting for Kids' work is to our community, but also allows our organization to raise funds to support programming, including providing expert speakers and support groups, hands-on training sessions and numerous resources to empower parents to enable their child to reach his or her full potential.

The Evening's Attractions

  • A whole new room of carnival games, tents and your favorite carnival foods like cotton candy and popcorn!
  • Silent auction with luxury packages, including entertainment and gifts for him, her and the kids
  • Grand raffle with a fabulous night out on the town
  • Wine and beer/cider pulls with a chance to take home wine bottles, craft beer and hard cider selections (Can you help? Learn more about donating to this attraction and help four CFK families who are making a fun contest out of collecting donations!)
  • Delicious dining options, featuring heavy appetizers, cocktails and dessert (menu)
  • Awards ceremony, recognizing leaders in the community who have helped families with children who struggle
