About The Event

Passion for the Village is an annual dinner-auction that raises the funds necessary to support programs and services at Children's Village. Being a place where children with special needs are children first and are defined by their unique qualities, talents, and potential; not their diagnosis; Children's Village is a true gift to our community.

On behalf of more than 9,000 children in our community who each year are served by Children's Village,  - We are GRATEFUL! Passion for the Village is a celebration of an amazing commitment our community has made to provide services to children and their families in our valley and we are grateful for your participation!

Passion for the Village will take place on Friday, May 12 at 5:30 p.m. at a NEW LOCATION -The Modern Living Building at State Fair Park, 1301 S Fair Ave, Yakima. This wonderful evening includes dinner, a silent auction, raffle, a live auction emceed by Kevin Joyce and an inspirational message from our guests of honor, the Cadwallader Family, whose lives have been touched and changed by Children's Village.
