Serve On A Committee
As we endeavor to create opportunities for all children in Randolph County to be healthy and ready to learn when they begin kindergarten, we look to our community and stakeholders for expertise, talent and leadership. There are a variety of committees that steer the work of the Partnership. If there is one (or more) that interests you, please complete our Volunteer Interest form. Please be sure to indicate the committee(s) on which you’d like to serve.Volunteer Interest Form
Gala for the Children
The Partnership’s premier fundraising event is the Gala for the Children. There are multiple committees each year under the leadership of the Gala chairs. Committees help with the silent auction, soliciting sponsorships, set-up and more. Committees meet 3-5 times in the four months leading up to the Gala.
