Join Us at an Event

Throughout the year, Crisis Nursery hosts several events that play a vital role in supporting our mission. Nearly 20% of our annual budget comes from these events and third party fundraisers. There are multiple ways to get involved. Find out more about each event by clicking the links below.

Calendar of Events

April

Child Abuse Prevention Month:

A time to act collectively to raise awareness and empower people across the nation to play a role in "making great childhoods happen."

Throughout the month of April, we collaborate with other organizations in the community to spread awareness. The month typically holds a variety of outreach events, fundraisers, and learning opportunities to help us all become better advocates.

Art Mart Wine Tasting:

This fundraiser is one we look forward to every year! Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted our ability to host this event in person in 2020. Instead, we had a week long non-event and gave away a week's worth of wine! We will still have a wine tasting with Art Mart sometime in the second half of 2020!

Stay tuned for more updates and details of when this event will be taking place!

June

Annual Dinner & Auction:

This signature event for the Nursery has been around for 27 years and is our biggest fundraiser. We gather together for dinner, drinks, and conversation while supporting the Nursery's mission. Throughout the night we have silent auction baskets up for bid, a live auction towards, and a live paddle raise to support Continuing the Legacy.

Although the event took place virtually this year, we look forward to hosting an in-person event with you all again in 2021!

September

Zach McNabney Memorial Golf Outing:

We have hosted a golf outing for a number of years, then in 2015, we renamed the event to honor Zach McNabney, a popular and successful businessman, golfer, and coach. Zach was a true friend and loyal advocate of Crisis Nursery who served on our Board of Directors for 8 years! In the final months of his life, he spearheaded a successful effort among his friends to sponsor “A Day at the Nursery.”

Every year we honor his memory by hosting this event.

December

Children's Holiday Shop:

Crisis Nursery's Children's Holiday Shop is an exciting fundraiser for all! The kiddos get to shop for everyone on their list with the help of a community volunteer, this ensures that the gifts are a surprise for family and friends. As they leave the shop, children are always full of pride with the items they have picked out on their own and an understanding that it is just as great to give as it is to receive.

This week-long event is a community staple. In 2019, we added a silent auction for parents, grandparents, and guardians to browse while their children shopped!
