Dear CCDS family and friends, Mark your calendars for February 11 and sign up for “let’s play” at the Panthers’ Den at Bank of America Stadium! This evening marks the 2006 Charlotte Country Day School Auction, a biennial event planned and executed by a remarkable team of Parents’ Association volunteers, enthusiastically chaired and “coached” by Christe Eades and Tricia Harrison. Over the past decade, our Parents’ Association’s fund-raising energies and events have netted well over two million dollars, funding exciting resources and opportunities that dramatically impact our CCDS students’ experience every day. All of us at Country Day—faculty, staff, and trustees—are truly grateful for our school community’s spirit of generosity and demonstrated commitment that strengthen the learning environ- ment and opportunities we can provide for our students. We hope you will join us for the 2006 Auction’s “let’s play” celebration, where you’re sure to enjoy great team spirit and discover must-have items garnered for this event by our creative and dedicated Auction Committee. With all best wishes and hopes that we’ll see you at the “game.” Margaret Gragg Head of School Title Sponsor All Stars Baytree and Associates Varsity Team Marsh Properties Katie and Mike James Starting Lineup Anonymous Angela and Ralph Breeden Joan and Jim Carroll Coca Cola Bottling Co.
