Celebration

An annual dinner auction benefitting CHCA’s operating budget


Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy’s annual fundraiser is the Celebration dinner and auction, an evening of fun and fellowship that provides funding to further CHCA's mission. Each Celebration event features an elegant dinner, silent and live auctions, raffles and more!

Celebration 2018 was a night of FUNdraising for over 400 guests and volunteers at the Savannah Center on 02/10/18. The evening included silent auction items ranging from practical to extravagant resulting in something for everyone’s budget and desire. Those willing to take a risk enjoyed the Gala Draw, Yelton diamond necklace raffle, 10x raffle and craft beer raffle. Those looking for a sure winner opted for the Wine Wall or recognizing a faculty or staff member in the Golden Apple drawing. Ken Kington led the Live auction and included two adorable puppies, 3 nights at Canyon Ranch, Pedal Wagon party and a villa in Tuscany to name a few. Through the generosity of sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees we together raised $180,000 to support CHCA.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Celebration?

Celebration is an annual event that combines fellowship and fundraising for CHCA. The evening includes silent auction, raffles, seated dinner and a live auction. Guests use mobile bidding to participate in the auction. It’s easy, fun and all you need is your phone!

A wide variety of items ranging from practical to extravagant! Historically we have offered restaurant gift cards, grills, puppies, opportunities to go bowling with a teacher, tickets to Walt Disney World, to name just a few!

How can I get involved?

We are glad you asked!


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


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.


The success of the event relies heavily on the quality and variety of items donated. It may be something you can 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! Celebration 2018 is Black Tie optional so feel free to bust out the tux and long gown. However, semi formal attire is very appropriate as well. Tuxedos, gowns, cocktails dresses, suits or whatever you are comfortable wearing is welcome.

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.
