Join Us for The Mane Event

NOVEMBER 4, 2021

Spend an evening with CHS community members as together, we seek to raise support to satisfy the expenses beyond what a CHS tuition covers and bridge the gap to a stronger future for our students. The Mane Event, an annual fundraising initiative, will support The Lion Fund to fulfill the monetary needs required to continue to strengthen our programming, financial aid, and growing enrollment. The event will include dinner, a live auction, student performances, and fellowship with friends and families. 

"Love Crimson, Give Gold" Live Auction Preview


Ready for the thrill of a lifetime? Embrace an incredible opportunity for two hunters to enjoy the finest whitetail hunting in the country. Located in the heart of big-buck country in southeast Iowa, Timberghost has spent the past 20+ years implementing an intense management philosophy focused on maximizing herd genetics while creating the ultimate whitetail habitat to provide guests with one of the most incredible whitetail hunting experiences imaginable. While Iowa's bluff country can physically challenge even the most experienced hunter and the mature bucks of the Midwest will test your mental abilities, the destination’s five-star accommodations and down-home service in the 13,000 square foot lodge will make sure you are rested and ready for the next day's hunt. Wake up and hunt trophy Iowa whitetail, explore exclusive private land, and end the day relaxing in a premier hunting lodge. The trip includes three day, four night hunts that include accommodations, meals, guide service, hunt transportation, and field prep. Not included are any before/after hunt expenses, packaging/shipping, and gratuities. Enjoy an incredible whitetail trip with a hunting companion at one of the top whitetail destinations in the country. Dates will be for a 2022 or 2023 hunt. The winning bidder needs to contact the outfitter to arrange their 2022-2023 hunt of a lifetime.
