Did you know it costs an average of $40,000 a year to educate a child at CCVI?

Each year, we have at least a dozen students who do not have the financial support of a school district to attend CCVI and their parents do not have the personal funds to underwrite the full costs of their child attending CCVI. 

Last year, the Carr Family hosted Illuminate to help bridge the gap. The inaugural event raised more than $40,000 for CCVI.

We hope you'll join us Aug. 8 for Illuminate 2019 to help CCVI's children and families.

The evening will feature a silent auction and "Blind Wine" plus hand-crafted cocktails and delicious bites from The Russell.
