Granite Links Pavilion Tent

It’s time to celebrate 35 years of Quincy After School Child Care! We will party like it’s1987, the year QCARE was founded, with live music, delicious food, and local libations. 80’s attire is not required, but certainly welcome. It’s going to be a totally tubular time! The funds raised from the event will help to provide tuition scholarships for a child from a low-income family, fund local field trips, and expand QCARE’s curriculum programming.

Gala Committee

The Carnival Gala Committee is a diverse group of leaders in the Quincy community. They volunteer their time, provide expertise, engage their networks, and support QCARE’s fundraising efforts. We are grateful to this group of QCARE champions and all that they do to support Quincy youth.
