A captivating program celebrates special honorees that have made remarkable impact in the lives of the children and teens we serve everyday.

Wacky Wonky Walk & Kids Festival in the Fall

DSC_3969A scrumdidlyumptious day to benefit the San Diego Center for Children! Imagine stepping into a magical, candy-filled world… a nonsensical and wacky obstacle walk, filled with “pick-able” wallpaper and life-size candies. And a post-walk festival, fun for children, adults, and adults who act like children… featuring kid rock bands, a Kids Zone full of inflatables, laser tag, climbing wall, a zip line… and more!  Exhibitors, food trucks and the Candy Court ensure there’s something for everyone! Just before Halloween means costumes are a must.

Holiday FUNDrive in the Winter

Holiday FUNDriveDon’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to make a difference for a child or family this holiday season! Whether you adopt a child’s Holiday List, host a donation drive or bring a gift from our program-wide Wish List, we invite you, your family, friends, co-workers and others to the Center to help turn our main campus into a Winter Wonderland! A fun afternoon filled with live music, holiday goodies, gingerbread-house making and trimming trees with children at the Center… the cost of admission is one (or more!) gifts for the children, youth and families being helped at the Center.
