We are pleased to announce the CCC Spring Gala& Auction! “Imagine…” will take place on March, 16 in the Cascade Ballroom, at Oregon Zoo. It is the largest event of the year. The evening will feature both a live and silent auction, a gourmet dinner, and a dessert dash! The proceeds from the Annual Gala allow our children to have all the paint they could ever wish for, clay for ideas, and books for dreaming! The funds support our teachers and the projects they imagine with the kids! The CCC Gala keeps our “Maggie May Scholarship” strong and growing. When our extended community gives, we all benefit!
A Message to Our Community…

Your generous support demonstrates your commitment to children as well as allowing you a 100% tax deduction for the value of your gift as an advertising expense for your business. This is a great way to achieve visibility by tapping into an engaged and active community of educators and families. Donations with a value of over $250 will be celebrated as major contributors, and receive a special display ad in our publications where we will continually encourage our families to support your business throughout the year.
