Annual Auction & Dinner Gala

The 2018 theme for this year's auction is...

CCS held its first Auction and Dinner event in June of 2012. 
In 2014, we began incorporating themes to our events. That first year it was Aloha & Mahalo and the gym was transformed into a tropical oasis.

2015, the theme was Springtime in Paris, and in addition to French Cuisine, guests were treated to an evening along the Champs d'Elysse.

2016, CCS got "Lost in the 50's". Poodle Skirts, a Carnival and Betty Crocker's Test Kitchen were all a part of the evening's events.

2017, we went even further back in time, to the Wild, Wild West. Sasparilla, Bar-b-que, and a great night in the West.

Each year, leading up to the event, we seek sponsorships and donations throughout our school community and area.

This annual event is a lot of hard work, but the rewards have been tremendous.
The funds raised in years past have helped to provide bus transportation, chemistry tables, smart boards, and a new playground! 

Prior to 2015, CCS students did not have bus transportation. The funds raised helped to purchase now two buses, and CCS is able to offer transportation to Queen Anne's and Caroline County families.

Please keep reading to learn how you can help our event, our school and our students.

We count on each of our families' to contribute to this success!

The annual auction and gala is an evening of fellowship and fundraising. Parents, community friends, faculty and staff come together to celebrate all that God is doing at Chesapeake Christian School.

The event includes live and silent auction, entertainment, dinner, dessert and more.

The auction and gala provides a wonderful opportunity for our Chesapeake Christian family and members of the community to partner together to raise funds that directly benefit our students and faculty.

We would love to have you join us! Please contact Lori Secrist to find out how you can get involved and contribute to the ongoing success of this great event.

The saying goes, "Many hands make light work", and that is certainly the case with putting together an event such as this! Volunteering just a small amount of time, whether it is for gathering donations, helping greet people the evening of the event, decorating, hunting for decorations, promoting the event, or cleaning up afterwards.

It takes a village to raise a child and this is a way we can give back to those who help teach our children the many wonderful things they learn at Chesapeake Christian School. Please consider devoting just a small amount of your time, not only attending the event, but in its development. If you would like to help, just contact Lori Secrist. We thank each of you who helps make this event a success!!


By participating as a donor, you not only receive the benefit of contributing towards the success of this event, but you have the opportunity to receive recognition from those bidding on the Silent Auction items. The auction is made great by all of the wonderful items we receive. Thank you!!

In addition to items or services, you may wish to make a financial donation. For your convenience, we have set up a PayPal donation button. We are grateful for everyone's contribution to the success of the event!
