Community FUndraisers

The Institute collaborates with many businesses and organizations that help us provide support for children with special needs and their families. Here's what some are doing to help:

Dunked Logo

Getting DUNKED for a good cause

DUNKED is put on by Chattanooga Friends, and the Institute was selected as one of four non-profit organizations to benefit from the event. In this community event, some of Chattanooga's finest volunteer to "take the plunge for good cause." For a small donation, participants will receive three balls to throw at the dunkee of their choice. This annual event is held in the Fall each year.

Chattanooga Radio Control Club - "Flying Circus"

The Chattanooga Radio Control Club selected Siskin Children's Institute as the beneficiary of their annual "Flying Circus," that includes flying demonstration events of radio control, scale model airplanes. Their show includes giant scale aerobotics, pylon racing, helicopters, warbirds and even scale model jets. Gate-entry proceeds, concessions and raffle ticket purchases support Siskin Children's Institute. This has become an annual event with proceeds benefitting our kids.
