Sip. Savor. Support.

Blue Lake and Little Blue Preschools Annual Fundraiser

Blue Lake and Little Blue Preschools are non-profit childcare centers caring for children ages six weeks to ten years old. Sip. Savor. Support. is our largest fundraiser of the year!

Unfortunately, this event had to be canceled this spring due to the COVID crisis. The good news is that we’ve moved our fundraiser online so now you can participate from anywhere!

In 2019, Blue Lake and Little Blue Preschools raised more than $49,000 from our annual Sip. Savor. Support. fundraiser. Proceeds from this event have been used to support many exciting projects that continue to enhance the school – the kitchen installation, the expansion of the Rockin’ Raccoon room, increased summer programming, and additional buses for field trip transportation to name a few.

As we continue to adapt our programming and childcare services to meet the ever-changing circumstances amidst a pandemic, we are so grateful for the generosity of our families and donors. We are asking for your continued support in helping our school provide quality care for children that live throughout the valley. There are several ways to participate:
