The CSI Guild organizes and volunteers for the following events:

Cabaret — CSI’s largest fundraiser of the year. The event features a wonderful dinner and great raffle prizes, followed by a hilarious comedy show. Volunteers assist with securing tables, soliciting raffle prizes and decorating the venue.

PurseOnalities — This is a very popular luncheon featuring an engaging keynote speaker and a silent auction of fabulous handbags and accessories. The result is great fun and great funds to support children. Volunteers assemble purse packages and assist with event set-up, event check-in and silent auction.

Touch-A-Truck — A free “friend-raiser” held in the fall and open to the public that features trucks, buses, emergency vehicles, race cars, cranes, snowplows and other heavy equipment. Volunteers help with set-up and tear down, direct and assist vehicle drivers, pick up trash, hand out toys/trinkets to children and supervise bounce tents. 

Substitute Santa — A critical program that ensures that CSI’s kids experience the thrill of receiving gifts during the holidays. Volunteers solicit and deliver toys and gift cards to CSI so program staff can “shop” for their client children and families.
