How can I get involved?

We are glad you asked!

1. RSVP to Attend

It’s a wonderful way to connect with friends new and old who all have a heart for CHCA.

2. Volunteer

We need help with all aspects of this event, from early planning and auction item procurement to decorating and tear down. Contact us to get involved or learn more.

3. Donate an item

The success of the event relies heavily on the quality and variety of items donated. It may be something you are able to provide personally but more often it’s asking a business that you frequent. We benefit from auctioning the item but the business gets great exposure in the CHCA community.

What should I wear?

Celebration is intended to be an elegant night out, so if you are looking for a reason to get dressed up, this is it! While the attire is semi-formal, you will see a wide range of dress- everything from suits and ties, cocktail dresses as well as what you would see on Sunday at church.

How is seating assigned?

You can do it or we can do it!

We encourage you to gather a table (seating for ten or twelve). You can list with whom you would like to be seated on the back of the RSVP card or a group name on your on-line registration.

If you'd like us to handle it we will attempt to seat you with others who have children of similar age or involved in similar activities.

Who coordinates Celebration?

While the CHCA Development Office has the lead organizational responsibility for Celebration, it is the efforts of the entire CHCA community that make the event a success. CHCA parents, faculty, staff, sponsors and local businesses all play important roles in creating an evening that generate fellowship and funds.
