Bagpiper Bash

We have postponed CAF’s Bagpiper Bash this fall due to the current challenges we are all facing with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our hearts go out to those directly or indirectly impacted.

We hope to have a version of the Bash this fall to socialize and raise money for the students of Carlmont High School and will have an update later this summer.

What a Night!

Hundreds of parents, teachers, staff and community members gathered at Waterdog Tavern, inside and out, under the twinkle lights of the beer garden, to support Carlmont High School academics at the Bagpiper Bash on Saturday, September 21st, 2019. The space was buzzing with energy while guests settled in to enjoy tasty and delicious beverages while supporting the Carlmont Academic Foundation in creative ways like a “Buy It Now” wall of gift cards, a Fund-A-Need for Science and other fun opportunities.  Guests connected with old friends and met new ones while being entertained by a wandering magician, and the tunes of a talented DJ.


We give a huge thanks go to Bagpiper Bash Chair Michelle Kelley and her amazing planning team Clarissa Naftzger, Mandy Gibbs, Shelly Kim, Robin Bennett, Kristin Lemke, Barbara Fetterly, Alexandra Bernardini and Ulla Foehr.  Special thanks go to Carlmont parents Anne Markle and Toby McMillen and the staff of Waterdog for the great food, wonderful ambience and party atmosphere that made the night memorable.

This event would not have been possible without CAF’s business partners and the many local businesses who generously donated to our Buy It Now Walls! Many thanks for the generosity of the community and ongoing support of the students at Carlmont.
