The Annual Fund Dinner & Auction
Over 200 parents, alumni, alumni parents, and grandparents came together on Saturday, April 8, 2017 for The Annual Fund Dinner & Auction. Thank you to all who donated, sponsored, and attended the event!
The theme for the evening was "Let's Build Something Together" with a focus on not only raising support for our annual fund, but also designated funds for new furniture for the middle school. Good food, good fellowship and many student performances made the evening a great celebration. We also honored Heather Templeton Dill '94 as our 2017 Alumna of the Year, and her remarks were a highlight of the evening. She talked about her gratitude for DC, specifically for the faculty members who impacted her life, the families who were her community as a student, and the even bigger impact on her family now as a current parent. She expressed her gratitude that through the ministry of DC she learned about the immovable foundation that is Christ, a powerful and encouraging message for all who attended.
The Lord blessed the efforts of the evening and the night was also a financial success. Together we raised just over $177,000! Thank you to all who supported new furniture for our middle school with $114,310 towards the effort, and to the sponsors, donors, and winning bidders who added $62,751 to The Annual Fund for DC. It was an amazing night and we are so grateful for the support of our current mission and our future plans.
We are grateful to all of those who have contributed to the success of the evening! A special thanks to our student performers from 12th grade to 3rd grade who blessed us with their talents!
