Events

Each year, Advocates hosts fun filled community events that provide vital funding for their many programs. Thank you for making our fundraising events such a huge success for over 30 years. Join us at the following annual events as we have fun while making a difference!

Polar Plunge
Join our warm-hearted community members as they take an icy plunge into the Dellinger Park Pool to raise money for Advocates. Each year, we reward our courageous jumpers with awards for best costume, most creative dive, and most money raised. If you’re not brrrave enough to take the plunge, you can still support the divers by grabbing a hot chocolate and cheering them on from the sidelines!

This year’s Frozen-themed Plunge is set for February 7, 2015!

Sponsorship opportunities are still available for this event. Please contact our Advocates for Children administrative offices for more information.

Every Child’s a Star
This annual Talent Show has been going strong since 1992 and continues to grow each year. Support our local community of talented youth ages K-12 as they sing, dance, play instruments, perform gymnastics, host a stand-up comedy routine, or woo us with a magic act! We encourage all kids to audition, and all community members to join us as we sit back and enjoy the show!

Spring Benefit
Our Spring Benefit Auction/Gala delivers an unforgettable evening of celebration, live music, dinner and cocktails, silent and live auctions in the Booth Western Art Museum. Our selection of silent auction items is on one of a kind, including the latest in home décor, fashion, beauty, travel and leisure, outdoor, and sports.
