Child Care Champions Showcase + Auction

On May 20, 2021 we held an inspiring virtual celebration of our early education heroes. This annual fundraiser spotlighted the importance of early care and education for San Francisco families and employers – which had never been more apparent during the pandemic – and honored the child care champions who had been so essential to our community this past year.

Missed the event but still want to contribute?

This year, we were pleased to honorRenee Underwood as our Family Child Care Provider Champion and Norman Yee as our Patty Siegel Child Care Champion.

Learn more about this year’s child care champions – both our providers and honorees – and celebrate their achievements and commitment.

This was the first year, our Champions event featured a Silent and Live Auction. Both (online) auctions proved to be fun ways for our supporters to engage with the event and support our Child Care Champions. Curious about what we had? Visit our online auction page or view our event program booklet.
