The Children’s Center has already scheduled the 5th Annual Children’s Center Auction for Saturday, September 28th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Governor Hill Mansion in Augusta. The evening will consist of a cocktail hour, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and a live auction with Maine Humorist, Gary Crocker.
The event began as an extension of the agency’s major fundraiser, the Chili Chowder Challenge, which already involves a culinary completion, children’s activities, silent auction, live music, and a snack bar. The fundraising committee decided to separate the live auction from the event in order to lessen the chaos during the Chili Chowder Challenge and offer another opportunity to share the vision, mission, and philosophy of the Children’s Center to another group of people.
The Children’s Center was thrilled that we raised over $25,000 at our 4th Annual Dinner & Auction. Thank you again to our sponsors, donors, guests, and volunteers for all of your support!
