The Goddard School in Chagrin Falls is hosting two fundraisers that will benefit Working Animals Giving Service for Kids. These events at the Chagrin Falls Goddard School are part of the Kids Who Can! Program initiative, where students engage their individual gifts and talents in order to benefit local children living with disabilities in their daily lives.
The first fundraiser is an art auction. The students in each classroom at Goddard created a piece of artwork that will be displayed as part of a silent auction running from October 15 through October 19. The art pieces created by the students and teachers are one-of-a-kind, with designs ranging from nature scenes to inspirational quotes to a Jackson Pollock-influenced piece.
Through October 31, a variety of raffle baskets will also be available to win. Local businesses donated the raffle basket items to The Goddard School in Chagrin Falls in order to benefit W.A.G.S. 4 Kids Program.
“Here at the Chagrin Falls Goddard School, part of learning is teaching the children how important it is to help others,” said Kim DiMuzio, owner of Chagrin Falls Goddard School. “When I heard about [the] organization, I truly wanted to get our school, teachers and parents involved. As usual, all our families wanted to be involved by donating their time and talents to help children in the W.A.G.S. for Kids Program. We are fortunate to have this opportunity and we thank W.A.G.S. for their amazing non-profit organization for such a wonderful cause.”
The Goddard School Chagrin Falls fundraisers are a prime example of what a Kids Who Can! Project is – kids helping other kids. W.A.G.S. 4 Kids is so grateful for the work of the Chagrin Falls Goddard School’s staff, students and parents in planning and executing these events. It was amazing to see the variety of art pieces that were collectively created by students of all ages.
