Merry Go Round 2021

Merry Go Round is the longest-running fundraiser in Columbus, and it has been supporting the children of The Childhood League Center for more than 70 years.

This year, the League and The Center have worked together to create two options in support of Merry Go Round so everyone can participate in the environment they’re most comfortable. Don’t feel like you have to just choose one option. We’d love to see you at both!

Virtual Event on May 22

Take part in a classic Merry Go Round experience, celebrating 75 years of transforming challenging starts into unstoppable futures, from the comfort of your own home!

Hosted by Nina West this virtual event will feature the elements that you’ve come to know and love during Merry Go Round including dance performances, Auction of the Heart, and an inside look at what’s been happening at The Center.

Plus, we’re catching up with well-known Center families and supporters past and present to see how The Center has changed their lives. And back by popular demand, Merry Go Round In A Bag can be delivered to your home to enhance your experience!

In-person Event on June 5

This in-person event encompasses the heart and soul of Merry Go Round in a safe environment.

We are heading outside to celebrate The Childhood League Center and its mission under the sun and stars at Rockmill Brewery, a beautiful outdoor space that can accommodate 400 guests while maintaining social distancing guidelines.

    • Attendees can picnic in the fields, play yard games, partake in beer tasting events and participate in our famous auctions, all while enjoying some fabulous local bands and food.
    • One of the newest additions to our silent auction will be an ‘Art Walk’ sponsored by Columbus State Community College where we will auction off a curated collection of student artwork.

There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place occupied by people. By attending this event, you are agreeing to follow safety protocols and assuming all risks related to potential COVID-19 exposure.
