“Using the power of change to impact early childhood education”

Mark your calendars and plan to join us at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods-College at the Jeanne Knoerle Sports and Recreation Center on the campus of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College on September 25th. Doors will open at 3:00 pm for restaurant sampling, cash bar, networking, and purse raffle tickets. The live auction and purse raffle drawing will begin at 5:00 pm.

Yes, you read that right we are bringing back the live auction this year with 4 fabulous packages donated by local businesses for a value of over $1,000 each! Thank you to Central State Construction, Elanco, Coldwell Banker, and Vectren Centerpoint Energy.  But don’t worry we will still have more ways to win a magnificent purse with fantastic extras included! We will have 10 purse packages sponsored by other great local businesses and organizations that will be raffled. This allows everyone the chance to go home with a new purse!

Come hungry as we will be featuring delicious treats from over 20 local restaurants and a cash bar will be available.  We will also have a seat for everyone with table seating in the gymnasium!

And don’t forget this all supports the kids! Success By 6 is a United Way committee that focuses on promoting early childhood education in our community and preparing all children for kindergarten. This amazing group offers the Real Men Read and Read United programs, helped bring On My Way Pre-K to our community, and offered grants to local child cares to increase the quantity of high quality spaces in our community. This is among many other great programs and resources for the future of our community, the children.
