Join United 4 Children for the annual

Lighting the Way Gala

United 4 Children’s annual Lighting the Way Gala is an opportunity to come together in community with childcare providers, United 4 Children staff, and community members, like yourself, who make children a priority.

Proceeds help fund United 4 Children’s vision to ensure all children have the foundation to thrive. United 4 Children with support from its donors, in 2022:

  • held 2,724 hours of coaching;
  •  supported 8 educators – and 86 educators since 2013 – in earning the Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential in the Normandy School District alone;
  • facilitated nearly 300 developmental screenings for children; and more.

Will you join us in lighting the way for our region’s childcare providers, children, and families?
