Dust off your ball gown, throw on your superhero cape, and join us for Central Alabama's premier family event! Meet your favorite fairy tale characters, dance the night away, and make memories to last a lifetime while raising valuable support for Alabama's children.


Once Upon a Time...

Celebrating its 17th anniversary, the Fairy Tale Ball returns with more magic than ever before!


With more than 300+ attendees each year, the Fairy Tale Ball delights and entertains both the young and the young-at-heart with entertainment and dancing, an incredible silent auction, interactive activities with some of your favorite fairy tale characters and super heroes, and so much more — all to benefit children and families served by the Childcare Resources mission.


For nearly two decades, the Fairy Tale Ball has changed the lives of children and families, right here in Central Alabama, by raising funds to support the Childcare Resources mission.

Since the first event in 2007, more than $1.5 million has been raised to provide information, education, and assistance to children, families, and child care providers across our community.

Thanks to the generosity of event sponsors, volunteers, donors, and attendees, Childcare Resources continues to provide early education opportunities children need not only to survive, but to thrive. To put it simply, your support allows Central Alabama's children to reach their full potential!


Silent Auction

Our signature Silent Auction features 100+ items and packages available for bidding, all to raise funds to further the Childcare Resources mission. 

Through our virtual bidding platform, more than 500+ guests participate in bidding (primarily c-suite executives and community influencers with young children) and appreciate when businesses support the philanthropic works of worthy causes. A donation to our auction not only gives your business unique exposure, but also raises valuable dollars for children in need.
