Change the First Five Years Dinner

Once a year, the top supporters of early childhood education in Flagler and Volusia Counties get together for a night of awards and celebration.

The annual Change the First Five Dinner and Silent Auction is a way for ELCFV to recognize Early Educators in Flagler and Volusia counties going above and beyond while showing the public what we do for the community. It’s also a way for the public to get involved as there are numerous ways the dinner raises funds for the services we provide.

What Happens at The Dinner?

Theme: From lip singing battles to game shows, there is always an element of fun!

Awards: An announcement of the winners of the Early Educator Awards for Infant/Toddler, Preschool, and Provider of the Year.

Children’s Hand Art: For a small donation, you can bring home a colorful piece of art created by a child in our community!

Silent Auction: Browse and bid on the amazing baskets put together by our fundraising committee and generously donated by local businesses.

When Is the Next One?

Our fundraising committee is already thinking about ideas and themes for 2020’s Dinner! If you are a business or individual interested in being a sponsor or donating to the silent auction, please contact Allison Miller, 386-317-3352 or amiller@elcfv.org
