Celebrate Youth! is an annual event that highlights the achievements of young people who have overcome obstacles in their lives and serves as Bauer’s major fundraising effort for the year. Funds raised from this event are used to provide programs and services that support youth in developing the skills and accessing the resources that support them on their path to a “brighter tomorrow.”
Celebrate Youth! is held annually during Child Abuse Prevention Month (April). Youth are honored in five specific categories and receive a cash award of $1,000. A Youth of the Year winner is selected as well and they receive a $2,000 cash award. These awards and the event is made possible by generous donors. Faithful donors to the event are Ferrellgas, Henriott Group, SIA, and our award sponsors, listed below.
