YBF raffle & auction items

Spring is in the air and the Yellow Balloon Fair is just around the corner! The 45th annual Yellow Balloon Fair, a day of games, activities, food, and fun, will be held at CNS on Saturday, May 13 from 10am to 2pm. It’s an exciting day for current CNS families, alumni, and non-CNS families from Lexington and beyond. The YBF committee is looking to the CNS community for contributions of items or experiences to be auctioned or raffled at the fair. Do you cook? Donate a home-cooked gourmet meal! Love to knit? Give a baby blanket! Have extra sports tickets or a vacation home… these items get top dollar!

Would your workplace be interested in sponsoring the fair or donating an experience or item? Does your family have a relationship to a business or organization that might want to sponsor the fair or donate something to auction or raffle? It all helps!!

All proceeds from the YBF benefit CNS. Thank you in advance for your enthusiasm and generosity, and see you at the Fair! YBF Raffle and Auction Committee Co-Chair: Julie Fuhrer (
