The Auction & Gala is our school's largest annual fundraising event. It brings together families, friends, faculty, staff, clergy, alumni and distinguished guests from the Christ Episcopal community for a night of fun and festivity. The money raised at the Auction helps offset the costs of educating each child at CES, allows us to continue to offer needs-based tuition assistance, and helps sustain the reserve fund.
