									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

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.”
