Fundraising Events

Silent Auction

Our largest fundraiser, IC3’s annual Silent Auction combines a fun adult evening to mingle with friends, enjoy wonderful appetizers from a local restaurant, and bid on exciting items donated by local businesses. All proceeds raised at our silent auction support our scholarship fund. IC3’s scholarship fund enables all families the option of choosing high quality childcare, regardless of income. The Ithaca community supports our auction, providing IC3 with approximately 200 items and or services to be auctioned off. We offer childcare at our Warren Road location the evening of the auction for a small fee. It’s an exciting, fun evening out that supports a great cause!

Things on Wheels, Truck Show for Kids

Our “Things on Wheels” truck show is geared toward bringing families together for a fun community event at IC3. Things on Wheels is an annual event held each June. We invite families to have hands on experience with a large variety of interesting vehicles. Some popular vehicles include police cars, school buses, ambulances, fire trucks, big rigs, and a cement mixer where children can climb and explore in the driver’s seat. Another popular attraction is the Ithaca City Police Department SWAT bus. Children can take a tour with SWAT personnel, sit in the driver’s seat as well as experiment with the many on board cameras pointed in various locations throughout our parking lot. We also offer food, a bounce house, and our giant 24 foot slide! It’s a can’t miss family event!
