CCYC Art Auction 2020
As a non-profit, arts based childcare program, this fundraiser is our only means of raising funds for improvement projects. Because of the funds that we have received from generous donations from past years Art Auctions, we have been able to do some amazing things at CCYC. This year we continue to work towards our goal of replacing our classroom doors that were originally installed in 1955. We are also hoping to update our security doors, replace some sinks and countertops in our classrooms, and replace the entrance doors. In years past, we have been able to update our windows, install window guards, update to our playground and our gym, replace carpets, repaint the walls, fund our dance and Spanish classes, and update our classroom furniture. Your generous donations help make us great!
This online auction has something for everyone. Some items start auctioning for as little as $5. Auction items include artwork created by our 2 through 11-year olds, artwork from local artists, gift certificates from local businesses, hotel stays, tickets to shows, spa packages, teacher day off certificates and more. This year’s format includes a “BUY NOW” option for those items that you just have to have. Also new this year, is the use of PayPal and an option to have items shipped to your home. This is a perfect option for that friend or family member who wants to support their favorite kiddo, but lives out of town.

About Creative Center for Young Children
Des Moines’ only fine arts focused preschool and child care center – located in the historic downtown First United Methodist Church. We’ll introduce your child to artists – including visual artists, poets, musicians, and dancers – at an age appropriate level, allowing him/her to experience and experiment with a variety of art genres.
At CCYC, we don’t just want to meet state and national best practice standards, we want to exceed them – that’s why we staff an additional teacher in each classroom to maximize one-on-one interactions with your child.
We approach every day with imagination, innovation, and most of all, fun! To learn more about our program please visit our curriculum page.
