A $3.95% fee will be added ONLY for those who choose to use a credit card. No donation is too small! Checks may also be made out to the “CCS Class of 2021” and given directly to advisors Martin Kelly or Elise LaHart if you prefer instead of using this link. 

IF you wish to donate to the PTSA Senior Picnic or mini events that are being planned by parents in that organization, please send a check made out to “PTSA After the Ball” to CCS c/o Lisa Berson. 

Checks must be dropped off or sent in for the PTSA donations since this link is ONLY for the Senior Ball related items planned by the Class.

Thank you in advance for your support!
