  • Evening of Style

    The 2022 Evening of Style was a sold out show featuring clothing modeled by 9 DCHS students, 2 DCHS staff members and 1 faculty member. Clothing from Styled by JJ, Schaffer's Bridal Wear and Skeffington's Formal wear were featured and included everything from casual wear to gowns and tuxedos. The table decorations included French and Mexican themes, board games, hit TV shows and even school spirit. A special touch this year showcased some of our own DCHS celebrities assisting with bartending duties and wait staff assistance.

    Thank you to all that volunteered, attended and donated to make this event a success! Interested in helping with this event next year? Contact Carolyn at to volunteer.
