ArtStart in October - Planning Starts Now!

Schedule a night out in October with friends! At this annual fundraising event, PIC families, staff, and alumni mix and mingle while viewing children's art, enjoying a dinner buffet, and competitive silent auction bidding.

How will ArtStart be successful? With YOUR help!

Now, during the dog days of summer, is when the planning begins. Parents and teachers, from the infant rooms to the After-School Program to alumni, are the reason each year’s event is memorable in its own right. Talents, time and connections make ArtStart reflect the caring and uniqueness of our community. Come to an organizational meeting July 23, either at 1:30pm or 5:30pm, in the A-Z Room.
 
Each year, ArtStart raises much-needed money for the Parent-Infant Center’s tuition assistance program. The program was established in 1986 by PIC families for families with a household income too high to qualify for child care subsidies, but who struggle to manage the full cost of quality early childhood education. The continued participation and support of our community each year is what drives the success of this annual fundraiser. So mark your calendars for October 22 today!
