The Bright Spot Playground Fundraiser: 

Kid Central Create Art for Benefit Auction

On the first day of December Kid Central will launch a Facebook-based auction of children’s artwork. The money raised from this auction will benefit Bright Spot (a playground for local children at the Culpeper County Sports Complex).  To bid on artwork simply select the number of the artwork and place your bid amount on Kid Central’s Facebook page---then the top bid will be selected on December 16th at 5pm. 

Each piece of art is inspired and modeled after a famous artist’s notable creations. Artistic styles are inspired by Warhol, Van Gogh, O’Keefe and Kandinsky.

Six kid-created works of art are framed and ready to hang in your home or office.  Each one was created exclusively and lovingly to help raise funds for the Bright Spot Inclusive Playground in Culpeper.  The Bright Spot Playground is planned for the Culpeper Sports Complex near the intersection of Green’s Corner and Jonas Roads this fall, according to Culpeper Parks and Recreation. A grassroots effort to fund the project is currently underway.

“Our after-school children wanted to support the effort to fund this wonderful playground that will bring so much joy to the lives of area children,” said Rachel Palmer, Program Manager for Kid Central. “Our children and staff thought this would be a nice way to give back in a creative way.”

To place a bid on artwork visit the Kid Central, Culpeper’s Facebook page and give the number of the artwork along with your bid amount.

The artwork will be displayed around town for extra publicity.

The Culpeper Parks and Recreation Department has planned a playground at the Culpeper Sports Complex for a number of years.  It wasn't until the Bright family came forward with a donation for a wheelchair accessible swing that their daughter could use, that this project gained momentum.


The desire for more accessible amenities and the community support for an accessible playground has jettisoned this project to a high priority level in a short period of time.  


One family's donation and request for a wheelchair accessible swing inspired a playground where all children and caregivers can play, without limitation!


We invite you to be part of the momentum!
