Support Financial Aid through the CA Concert 2024 Live and Silent Auctions

On Saturday, May 4, 2024, the beloved biennial CA Concert returns with two amazing acts. We hope to see you there for what promises to be an unforgettable night of live music for an important cause.
Special thanks to Aurum Home Technology and Jenna and Walker Stapleton for sponsoring the Concert and to ANB Bank for sponsoring the Concert Pre-Party.

The CA Concert committee, chaired by Maggie and David Shapiro, has planned a fun event, featuring Nathaniel Rateliff and Margo Price. Funds raised from the event support CA’s endowment for financial aid, strengthening CA’s commitment to advancing opportunities for more students to experience what we all know and love about our school. CA is slated to provide $5.3 million in financial aid for the 2024-2025 school year. The school’s financial aid budget is also financed by The CA Fund, endowment returns, and a percentage of tuition.

We hope you will consider attending the event, but you also can support the CA Concert with a cash donation or be a part of the fun through the Silent and Live Auctions. The Silent Auction will be offered online, opening on Wednesday, May 1. That means that everyone near and far can bid on the fantastic items! The Live Auction will take place at the May 4 Concert prior to Nathaniel Rateliff’s performance. Special thanks to those making our auction items possible.
