The Bird Bash was a Resounding Success!
Our sincerest thanks to the entire James River Day School community for making the Bird Bash such a success and a wonderful tribute to Head of School Mary Riser. This year's Bird Bash raised over $100,500 -- a school record!
The school deeply appreciates the efforts of all those who worked so hard to make the Bird Bash into an evening to remember. The auction committee: Mary Dalton, Crystal Irby, Michelle Davis, Sarah Hellewell, Catey Easters, Ashleigh Lineberry, and George Vaughan pulled off an amazing event.
We are tremendously grateful to the many other volunteers, auction item donors, and faculty/staff members who gave their time, donations, and efforts. Our thanks also go to the faculty and staff who worked to make the occasion such a great success: Kasey Forehand, Joy Pratt, Rhonda Sydnor, Mike Brogan, Sally Horner, Laurie Sommardahl, Ann Parker, Susan Bingham, Jerry Stanley, Leighton Children, Carl Stanley, and Allen Richey.

Through Bird Bash ticket and auction purchases, and donations the Mary Wescott Riser Fund, all of you have helped push the Cardinals Study! Cardinals Play! capital campaign over the $2,000,000 mark! Thank you, James River Cardinals for your joy and spirit!
