The Royal Evening is an incredible event that changes lives!

The Royal Evening is the biggest CVCA community-wide celebration, where we come together annually for fun and fellowship to benefit CVCA students. The event supports CVCA’s Annual Fund, which helps bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of providing the CVCA experience. Not only is this night full of great food, great people, and great entertainment, but there are opportunities to “shop” and hear the stories of businesses in our community and bid on a myriad of items and experiences covering a wide array of price points. This event is, first and foremost, a time to celebrate God’s faithfulness to CVCA and recount His many blessings to us over the years. Please join us for a fun-filled night. We would love to see you there!
