The generosity of local businesses and a team of dedicated volunteers make it possible for Kids First to hold a lively after-work gathering ("Happy Hour") that includes a silent and live auction in Cedar Rapids. Happy Hour is a fun way to learn more about Kids First's mission of giving a voice to children in divorce, custody and other conflicts.


Kids First of the Greater Des Moines Area will also be planning a fundraiser event for 2018. Please check back for the announcement of the event location and date.


The 12th annual icare EAT-A-THON features Attorney Van Everett and law student David Newkirk  as contestants competing to eat the most chicken wings and raise the most money for Kids First Law Center of Greater Des Moines! Make a per-wing pledge or donation online to support Van Everett and his wingman by visiting:
