2018 – Spark a Future

On the evening of Wednesday, May 23, nearly 200 guests joined a roster of Fort Wayne’s most generous sponsors and special guest emcee, Curtis Smith, at Parkview Field for our “Spark a Future: Build, Play, Grow” event to help support children throughout our northern Indiana community. The dollars raised will help ECA provide and promote quality early childhood education so that we can build better futures for children. Last night’s musical entertainment was provided by local musician, Kenny Taylor.

ECA thanks all sponsors and guests for your generosity. YOU are making a difference!
