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!
