The Bird Bash


2024 Bird Bash logo

at Tresca on 8th

mobile bidding coming soon
All proceeds from this fundraiser will support plans to enhance and improve our cafeteria. More than just a dining space, our cafeteria serves as a multipurpose learning classroom, in which students build community over shared meals, develop public speaking skills through performances on stage, and play and learn during the extended day program. Proceeds will allow the school to refresh and add functionality to this vital community space, directly impacting every student every day as they live out their James River experience. 
Our goal is to raise over $100,000 for these planned renovations at James River Day School. Please join in as a sponsor and make plans to attend! The night will include live music, delicious food and drink, and both a live and silent auction with mobile bidding. 
We look forward to sharing updates with you as we work towards enhancing this important space on our campus and hope to see you at the Bird Bash Cafe Cardinal!
With thanks,
The Bird Bash Committee
