Live entertainment will be provided throughout the evening and includes a “surprise” must-see contest. The event will be held at The Coronado Marriott on Saturday, April 22, 2023.

We love to see how the community comes together: our parents, parishioners, sponsors, donors, and all who attend — we truly appreciate all the efforts and commitment on behalf of the students,” says Head of School Payton Hobbs.

Funds raised from this event will assist CCDS in offering affordable tuition, need-based financial assistance, and scholarships with the goal of creating a diverse and well-rounded community. Funds will also provide enrichment in the areas of the core curriculum along with special events and themes.
