Silly Boat is a fun, family event in support of a special cause – our children! All proceeds go to support programs and services for children with developmental needs and their families in our community. The NCDC serves nearly 1800 children and their families but presently have 249 children on a waitlist, waiting an average of 6 months for some services. Silly Boat is a wonderful team-building opportunity and we welcome you as part of the Silly Boat crew as we work towards this year’s goal of raising $125,000 in support of specialized programs and services to children and their families who require assistance from the NCDC. TOGETHER we can do it!
