Please join us on Saturday, March 14 for "Venice by Candlelight" our biggest fundraising event of the school year! We are planning a very elegant stroll through Venice as evening falls, with stops along the way for wine tasting, Italian sodas, antipasti, shopping, and entertainment. Follow up with an elegant candlelit dinner beneath twinkling lights serenaded by beautiful Italian musical selections. Luscious, decadent desserts, and rich coffee and espressos will end our night's stroll.
Our evening will begin with optional wine tasting in the CLHS Hidden Garden at 3:30 pm. The cost for this optional, pre-auction warm-up is $20 per person. Along with 5 tastes of wine you will enjoy light, palate pleasing snacks, fellowship, and fun in the garden patio behind our CLHS Dorms.
The Auction and Dinner will begin at 5:00 pm in the school gymnasium. Appetizers and Italian sodas will be available as you peruse the selection of Silent Auction items, make your bids, and enjoy some pre-dinner entertainment by our talented students. Dinner will be served buffet style with gourmet, Venetian style Italian fare under twinkling lights as our serenades of musical selections continue. Dessert and coffee will follow a presentation from our Auction Committee.
