Lower schoolers enjoyed a night of fun at our annual Boardwalk. (Sarah Neltner’20/ Media)
Each year, Columbus Academy holds the Charlie David Dinner, an event that raises funds for all of our athletic teams.
On September 20, hundreds of parents and children gathered in the Dining Hall for supper and a silent auction, which is the fundraiser’s main benefactor.
While some families attended this school function and then headed to the football game, many other families were engaged in a multitude of games at our annual Boardwalk in the Jones Gym. This is the biggest game night of the year for our younger Vikings. The Service Board sponsored and staffed the 2-hours of fun. Loud voices of glee and excitement were all that could be heard. A number of faculty volunteers worked with Service Board members on 16 booths, run by the Latin, Jewish, East Asian, Math, Robotics, Spanish, Investment, Cricket, Dungeons and Dragons, Code, and Puzzle clubs-along with Mecca, Arts Society, VIPS/Moden UN, and ASL.
At the Arts Society table, kids could win penny-candy by throwing footballs into a homemade game. The Service Board shapers created hundreds of ballon animals that varied in shape and size to keep the kids occupied throughout the night.
After Boardwalk came to end, students and families hustled to Hondros field where they watched the football team take on Whitehall, ending the night with a win and a whole lot of happy Vikes.
