Events, Benefits and Fundraisers
"Events bring together groups of advocates for a cause. They channel the group's energy into a single-minded expression of a feeling; sometimes determination, sometimes celebration, sometimes sadness or anger. But, it’s always powerful."
Throughout the year, Tennyson Center hosts a number of fun and inspiring events which engage the community to help support our programs, services and our overall mission. Additionally, many third-party events are held which also help us raise funds and increase community awareness. A current list of upcoming events is listed below.
Hosting a Third Party Event
Many groups, organizations, churches, businesses and corporations want to help support Tennyson Center for Children by holding their own fundraising events. We welcome these opportunities! If you or your group have an idea in mind for a fundraiser, we only ask that you contact us prior to planning the event so that we can approve the event to ensure that this fundraising opportunity is not only appropriate to the mission of Tennyson Center but also that we are able to properly thank the organizers.
