Host Your Own Event

You are invited to host your own event in support of DCAF. Your event would provide essential assistance for children and youth in the community. The children and youth being supported are living in vulnerable and unstable family situations. Consider the possibilities as you organize and host an event to raise funds for the Durham Children’s Aid Foundation (DCAF).

Event ideas may include: hosting an auction, a barbecue, a clothing drive or a tournament (i.e. baseball, volleyball, or golf) with proceeds going to support DCAF. Similarly, live and virtual events can be hosted. The event possibilities are endless, bound only by your imagination. Brain storm ideas with family, friends and colleagues. In addition, hosting an event could also raise the profile of your community group or business.
