This annual event creates an opportunity for the community to come together in a fun atmosphere, raising funds to help meet the needs of a rapidly growing school district.

The event has continued to grow each year, with more than 400 guests in attendance and more than 50 sponsors! We are hopeful to host the event in-person, but will continue to monitor COVID-19 guidelines and safety measures as we approach the date. Regardless, we plan to offer a virtual option where guests can participate in the way they feel most comfortable.

Our goal this year is to raise $50,000 at the Gala for the Foundation’s 12 programs that benefit students and teachers.
