Join us for the 8th Annual Orchard Place Moonlight Classic on July 13, 2019. Starting at 9:30 PM, hundreds of bikers will take to the streets for this safe and family-friendly fundraiser. Bike by spectacular downtown landmarks such as the Iowa Capitol, Gray's Lake and The East Village. Light up your bike, yourself or your helmet to compete for a host of fabulous prizes. Proceeds benefit the children of Orchard Place.
The Orchard Place Spelling Bee is a one of a kind event! You can literally pay for your mistakes, bribe judges and win prizes for most creative team name, best costumes, best cheering section and most bribe money raised. All proceeds benefit the children and programs of Orchard Place. Bring your sense of humor and leave spellcheck at home!
Trauma Informed Care Conference
Orchard Place recognizes the role trauma plays in young lives. Over the past 9 years, hundreds of professionals who work with children and families across the country have been a part of this conference, including practitioners, social workers, attorneys, educators and business leaders.
Rewarding, fulfilling and fun are just a few words used by our volunteers to describe their experience at Orchard Place. Last year, more than 400 people supported Orchard Place by volunteering. If you're interested in becoming a volunteer, there are many ways to make a difference in the life of a child.
