On Sunday, September 20th, over 140 Carlmont parents, teachers, administrators and supporters attended the 2nd Annual CAF Bagpiper Bash at Mistral Restaurant and Bar. Special thanks go to Carlmont parent Toby McMillen and the staff of Mistral for the great food, wonderful ambience, and party atmosphere that made the night memorable.

bash2015The guests arrived on a hot evening that was made cooler by the smooth and creative tones of retro jazz quintet Halsey and the Hi-Hats. Many guests participated in “Heads or Tails” with the hopes of winning an Apple Watch. Additionally, the silent auction offerings included tours of renowned wineries accompanied by double magnums of wine. The evening ended with funk and soul band Sinister Dexter bringing the temperature back up for great dancing.

In one evening, CAF raised over $26,000, enough to fund one class section + additional funds to support our teachers and students.

An evening like this takes an army of volunteers. Thanks goes to Bash Chair Julie Posern and her crack team of volunteers including Leslie Concilla, Anahid Derhacobian, Jennifer Kaufman, Nazan Meysami, Jennifer Webb, and Nicola Weiskopf. Additionally, we would like to thank the Bash Business sponsors DaVinci Marble, ErgoDirect, Friis Plastering, Inc., JK Tutoring, JSD Construction, Inc., Rangoon Ruby, and Trembley Carpet Cleaning.

Hope you can join us at next year’s Bash!
