Welcome to CountryDate 2021 Dīner en Bleu

CountryDate is Cincinnati Country Day School's annual fundraising gala, held each year in early March. This year we will blend the splendor of this Country Day tradition, with a format that balances fun, fundraising and our collective health!

CountryDate will be delivered as a virtual broadcast at 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 6.  It will incorporate many familiar aspects of our annual gala. Enjoy a chance to raise a glass with fellow community members and support our wonderful school from the comfort of your own home!

Proceeds from CountryDate supplement funds raised through The Country Day Fund to support the faculty, programs, and extensive opportunities that make a Country Day education so special.  In a year that has challenged us all, please consider standing with our community to support our school!

Don't forget: To participate in the evening's events, you must buy a ticket. One ticket is good for one household!
