Join us for a night under the stars with distanced socializing, kids activities, live music, and more!
Celebrate the local Child Care Champions working to increase equity, access, and affordability of high-quality early education in our community. Proceeds will benefit the Child Care Fund, providing scholarships for child care across the county. Tickets are limited, purchase yours today!
If you have been excited about being outside with friends and neighbors, AND supporting families during these unprecedented times, Cars Under Stars will check both things off your list! The evening will include family-friendly activities, special musical entertainment from Jason Downing and Lance Ruby of Musketeer Gripweed, and complimentary snacks and adult beverages. Each vehicle will receive two food/drink vouchers, and adults over 21 years old will receive a complimentary drink ticket.
In addition, United Way of Larimer County will honor three organizations with Community Leadership Awards as well as raffling off a vehicle from Dellenbach Motors! There's still time to enter the car raffle - make a gift today of $156 or more to be automatically entered!
The highlight of the evening will be a short format documentary, locally produced, exploring the critical need for affordable and quality child care in our county. The event’s donations will go directly to this important cause.
The evening program will transition into the Holiday Twin Drive-in playing Hook, at approximately 9:15 p.m.
Parking is limited; early registration is advised. If spots remain on the event day, drive-up tickets may be available, but not guaranteed.
United Way of Larimer County (UWLC) prioritizes access to high-quality, affordable child care in our community. With the average cost of early care exceeding $1200 per child, per month, providing financial support to families with low to moderate incomes is essential to ensure a healthy workforce, that child care is affordable and high quality, and the youngest children are prepared for school and succeed academically. This investment produces significant returns on both the economic and social health of our entire community.
Since its inception in late 2020, The Child Care Fund has distributed nearly half a million dollars to county child care centers and their families. Larimer County government’s $300,000 of Coronavirus Relief Funds was a major part of the initial distribution. The Child Care Fund increases access to high-quality care by closing the gap between a family’s ability to pay and the amount charged by a provider.
