Online Auction

We are now collecting donations of goods and services to add to our Online Auction!

Download an Auction donation form, or go to to donate directly online.  Last year, we received more than $100,000 value in wonderful goods and services from our parents, local businesses, grandparents, and more!  Help us raise funds for the Child Educational Center's unique children's programs by donating.

All proceeds from the Auction will directly support all our children's programs and our mission of fulfilling the promise of childhood.

The Online Auction will open on Friday, May 4  at 7:00 am.


Sponsorship Opportunities


Our Annual Auction + Benefit is made possible by the generous support of the community. Family Music Festival individual/business sponsorships (ranging from $100 to $5,000) provide vital funds to help underwrite the event, and provide the CEC with funds that go right back into the programs and organization. These 'unrestricted' funds support professional development opportunities for the teachers and staff, excellent teacher/child ratios, specific curriculum materials, and therefore the overall enhancement of the program quality.

To top it all off, individual event sponsors receive promotional benefits, and some levels receive raffle tickets, tickets to the Family Music Festival, and more! View all of the specific levels and benefits.

Room/Group Sponsorships 

These sponsorships unite our Infant-Toddler, and Preschool, and Co-op families in giving AND bring benefits to your child's room or group. Help us meet our goal that all 11 of our program groups reach $500!  You can donate online by clicking the button below. All size donations are welcome and appreciated.
