2017 Celebration for Children

The 2017 Celebration for Children raised an all-time high of more than $160,000 for Cornerstone programs and services. The 23rd annual Celebration for Children was held April 29, 2017 at the MOTOmuseum in Midtown. Approximately 275 people attended the event which had “The Magic of Play” as its theme and featured Rene Knott of KSDK NewChannel 5, dinner, auctions, raffles, videos, a photo booth, and a Wishing Well where guests donated dollars to purchase playground and water play toys and supplies. Many thanks to all attendees, donors, contributors, volunteers, and an amazing planning committee headed by Board member, Darcy Smith!

A very special thanks to our Celebration for Children sponsors!
