Come Party the Night Away With Us

ROARING 20'S

Friday, March 6, 2020
Bryan Glazer Family JCC

Hop into our time machine and hark back to
the days of flapper girls, gangsters, and jazz
at the party of the year!

Sponsorships are now available!

The Carrollwood Day School Annual Red Carpet Gala is our largest event of the year and is the perfect combination of fundraising and “FUNraising”.  The fundraising component includes auctions of fabulous gifts and experiences; “FUNraising” are the fun-filled experiences that this year will include: dueling pianos, cigar rolling, dinner, dancing, and much more.

Proceeds from this event directly benefit our students and provide funding for programs and resources to further enrich the distinctive educational experience offered at CDS. Parent volunteers organize this event from planning and soliciting donations through set-up and clean-up.

Interested in being involved with the Gala? Contact Sharon Spencer at sspencer@carrollwooddayschool.org or 813.920.2288.
