Legacy of Love Celebration FAQ's:
Are people from outside of CVCS invited?
ABSOLUTELY! Please invite anyone who would like to celebrate what God is doing through Christian Education in the Treasure Valley, those who would like to hear from Kay and Milan Yerkovich, or those who want a memorable night out with their spouse and friends that benefits a fantastic cause are definitely welcome. Please invite all your friends, family, alumni, and those who believe in Christian education to attend with you. They will be blessed!
Towards what will the funds raised go?
Winners will have the choice to contribute their winning bids one of the following: Athletics, Arts, STEM or Elementary projects. We will be presenting the vision for future projects at CVCS with opportunities to invest in those specific projects. More specific program wish lists are coming soon. These investments, in turn, influence our students who impact their world for Christ during and following their CVCS educational experience. Your investment has an eternal impact ... the extent of which we will know only when we reach Heaven.
