Champions for Children
WHAT IS A CHAMPION FOR CHILDREN?
A Champion for Children is a person or organization who has worked to make a positive difference in the lives of the children of our community. Through volunteerism, community service, special projects, or workplace, a Children’s Champion has gone the extra mile to help make our community safer, better, and more loving for children.

Champions for Children: A Premiere Event
On February 27, 2021, Jardin de los Niños hosted our Champions for Children: A Premiere Event Virtual Gala! Our 2021 Virtual Gala will take place via Zoom. All sponsors received an invitation in order to attend our virtual red carpet from the comfort of their own home! Our hour-long program paid homage to some of our children’s favorite movies and children’s classics as we celebrated our Champions for Children and Jardin’s families. Funding from the 2021 gala was dedicated to supporting our families as we elevate them out of homelessness and helped Jardin to celebrate our children’s birthdays! During the Virtual Gala, we shared how donor support furthers our mission and makes a difference in the lives of our children and families. It was a wonderful evening of celebrating our children, families, and Champions for Children!
