Children will have the opportunity to bid on items at the Children’s Auction. An adult must accompany children to receive a bidding number and remain in the vicinity during the auction. Items for the sale may be previewed prior to the start of the auction each day. 

Share Your Talent: Saturday, April 6, at 1:30 pm
Children are invited to perform in whatever way they like. It could be anything! (reading poetry, playing an instrument, singing, dancing, tricks, jokes, and more)

All proceeds from the Children's Activities will support the work of MCC’s community-based education programs available to children and young adults. When a child learns, a community benefits and lives change. Learn more about MCC’s education programs.
