Kiddie Academy of South Reno held their second annual silent art auction this year to support the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides invaluable assistance to families with children battling cancer.

Talented young artists at the Academy created art pieces that were featured at the auction. Over the past two years, Academy staff and families collectively raised $2,200. Not only did the event raise money for a worthy cause, but it also helped build a sense of community among our families.

“Reno is a small community, but it is a tight knit one. The families, teachers, and staff are all committed to helping others, and they are always looking for ways to give back to the community,” shared Franchisee Andrew Sizemore. “Our silent auction was just one example of their generosity and compassion.”
