CountryDate 2021-22 Illuminate Logo


CountryDate is Cincinnati Country Day School’s annual fundraising gala, held in early March. On this special evening, you will enjoy the company of friends, revel in the entertainment, games of chance, drinks, and dinner at your leisure, all while celebrating our wonderful school.  

Proceeds from CountryDate supplement funds raised through The Country Day Fund and support the enriching programs, student opportunities, and phenomenal faculty that make a Country Day education so special.

CountryDate is a community event, and you can get involved in a myriad of ways:

Sponsor CountryDate


CountryDate’s success each year is driven in large part by the generous businesses and families who sponsor the event. Advertise your business, express the support of your family, or honor a teacher for his or her work!

Sponsorship is available at a range of levels from $500 to $7,500, all with great benefits. For CountryDate 2022, we are thrilled to announce the return of last year’s Presenting Sponsor, 72 SOLD and Country Day alumnus Greg Hague ’66.

Volunteer CountryDate

Organizing CountryDate is a team effort!  We rely on volunteers to help collect gift cards, donation packages, and certificates from stores and restaurants around town. We need your help!  

Please consider volunteering for our auction team – it’s a fun and easy way to support the event. More details to come. 

Donate CountryDate

Each year, we have more than 200 families and local businesses donate items to our silent auction.  

Have a contact at a local service provider who you could ask for a donation? Are you a season ticket holder for a local sports team or theatre venue and willing to donate tickets to a game or production? Own a vacation home that you could share for a long weekend?  

Stay tuned for a Sign-Up Genius list, Amazon Wishlist, and for details of our Donation Drop-Off Day.


Attend CountryDate

CountryDate is always a memorable night with friends!  Get together with fellow parents and alumni for drinks, food, and endless fun! 

In keeping with the evolving format for this event, CountryDate 2022 will be a casual night for everyone to enjoy.  As soon as Major League Soccer releases their 2022 schedule, we will finalize the date – a non-game day Saturday in early March.

Date coming soon!


Join the fun at Camargo Trading Company in Madeira on December 9 to kick off CountryDate 2022. Gather with friends, enjoy a holiday beverage and lite bites, shop for holiday gifts, and celebrate the kick-off of this Country Day tradition!
