It was EPIC!
God Raised $190,643.03
at The Legacy Gala for our School
It was beautiful. It was inspiring. It was super FUN! The gala raised close to $200,000 for our great school as people embraced the idea of building something that will have lasting impact after they are gone.

With the additional 150+ items in the online auction, we should be able to shoot well above that goal to benefit CVCS.

Thank you to the team who brought this incredibly fun evening to fruition. Their belief in our mission, determination to make it successful, and months of prayer over the event, set up a night through which God blessed our students tremendously. We are grateful for their investment of time and talent.
Now - Sunday, April 21, 5 pm
Opportunity for ALL
Teacher features, art projects, tickets, gift cards, centerpieces galore are available on the Online Auction. Please share this link on your social media, with your friends, family, church, and co-workers.
