CECDS Celebrates Mardi Gras at Their 14th Annual Spring Auction

Are you excited about the SuperBowl? Keep the New Orleans party alive and come out to celebrate Mardi Gras with CECDS on Friday night, February 8th at 7:00 p.m. The Christ Episcopal Church Day School, Kent Island’s original preschool, invites the whole community to join them in celebrating this festive night.

The party will be held at the Shand Hall, adjacent to Christ Episcopal Church, 830 Romancoke Road in Stevensville. The menu, prepared by Kentmorr Restaurant, will feature Dave’s scrumptious gumbo, jambalaya, crab dip, salad and Chesapeake chicken wings for a little hometown flavor topped off with Bourbon Street Bread pudding for dessert.

This year the live auction will feature the auctioneering talents of a CECDS graduate and local celebrity Chad Helfenbein. Some of the amazing items available in the auction include four tickets to Walt Disney World, an autographed PRS guitar, a fishing trip, and vacations to beaches near and far. In addition to these large ticket items are restaurant gift certificates and sports memorabilia. There is truly something for everyone!

Tickets to the event are on sale now and can be purchased by mailing a check to the school or by calling 410-643-8248. In addition to a night of auction fun, the event ticket includes the Mardi Gras Menu as well as beer, wine and of course the signature Hurricane fountain sponsored in part by Love Point Deli, Thompson Creek Liquors, L&L Liquors and G&G distributors. Tickets purchased before February 1 are $40 each or $70 for two. A whole table of 8 can be reserved for $250. If you are not able to attend, you can sponsor a table to promote your business. A $200 sponsorship includes signage at the table, a listing on the sponsor page of the event program, as well as the donor section. After February 1 all tickets will cost $50 and can be purchased at the door on February 8.

To mail a check for tickets or sponsorship, the school’s address is CECDS, P.O.
