Annual Blossom Ball Fundraising Event

An Evening on the Red Carpet


June 1 to June 19, 2020

CCD’s signature fundraising gala event, has fallen victim to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 health crisis–but you won’t be surprised to know that we have used our creativity to create a virtual event!

The Blossom Ball online gala will run between June 1 and June 19, culminating in a special live cocktail hour hosted by Julia Wilkinson Manley and Rich Cowden and featuring special guests, awards presentations, performances, and a live paddle-raiser auction.

Beginning June 1, participants will be able to visit our Blossom Ball website (hosted by Auctria for those of you familiar with this platform) and either make a direct donation or bid on our silent auction items. Then, on the evening of the originally rescheduled date of June 19, you can watch our one-hour special event while sharing CCD-themed cocktails (we’re working on the mixology as we speak) with your hosts and show your support with a live paddle-raiser bid.

Check back soon for all the links and information on how you can join us!
