What is Dining for Kids?

Thirteen years ago, Karen Baker was both a family consultant and board member at Allen Creek. When she heard the school was having some financial difficulties, she simply said, “Let’s have a dinner and raise some money. We can help with scholarships.” In just one month Karen, along with a group of teachers, fellow board members and parents did just that.

Our goal is to raise $25,000 to support school programming that your children love and makes Allen Creek one of the most innovative schools in the State of Michigan.

Our annual spring fundraiser raises money for such initiatives as:

  • Expanding our ongoing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiatives
  • Visual arts and music programming
  • Community Meal and Family Art Night
  • Teacher salaries and supplies
  • Upkeep and equipment for playgrounds and Franklin Yard
