Attend an event at Joya

At Joya Child & Family Development, we see possibility in every child and our staff delights in their success. As the only Neurodevelopmental Center of Excellence in our region, we aim to impact as many children and families as possible. Our many different events help raise funds to support Joya’s ongoing operations as well as our Foundation, ensuring those who need our help can get it, even if they can’t pay.

Join us for one of our annual events, and leave happy knowing you’re impacting a child for a lifetime.

Hearts of Joya

Hearts of Joya is an inspiring event that shares Joya’s mission and vision with the community. The event is a perfect way to introduce friends, family, coworkers and other connections to the work that Joya does to help children with delays and disabilities realize their potential and build skills for lifelong success.

There are various ways for you to participate, including sponsoring the event, being a virtual watch part host or registering as a guest.

Kids for Kids Penny Drive

For 25 years, our Annual Kids for Kids Penny Drive has brought together families, students, educators, Joya trustees and other community volunteers who care about kids. Traditionally, the event includes presentations to kids throughout the school year, culminating in our Community Penny Drive Day each spring. However, in 2020, COVID restrictions forced the entire event online. Joya will continue to adapt depending on the latest COVID guidelines.

Classic Golf Tournament

Every June, Joya and our friends at Bank of America come together at Manito Country Club for a day of good golf and good food, for a good cause. Thank you to all the players, volunteers, donors and dinner guests who have joined us in the past.   

This year, Joya will have to take a different approach.  We have decided to forego a traditional golf tournament, but have created a virtual tournament for our loyal supporters to participate in!
