The Spring Gala is the last major fundraising event of the school year. This night is an adults-only gala that includes dancing, drinking, eating and entertainment, and an auction with lots of great items donated by our community.

The committee gathers auction items from the business community, from the teachers, and from classroom projects. We depend on the generosity of the community and teachers, but most importantly you – our parents! Your support at the event, bidding on auction items, provides the money to fund materials for teachers and programs for the kids, like Spanish, Art, Ceramics, Garden, Theater, and so many more! We hope you will join us at this fun, annual event to celebrate the great work we do at McKinley. Put that date on your calendar now!

We also take this opportunity to ask for donations of auction items for the event – perhaps you, or a friend, have a business (or hobby) that provides a service or good, a time-share you won’t be using, free passes to a California theme park or museum sitting around, or new golf clubs you got as a gift you won’t be using… we would greatly appreciate those items to raise money for McKinley! 

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box – we have heard of moms auctioning off margarita parties where they provide drinks at their house for the high bidders, or fairy soirees where the host entertains a group of children and teaches them how to make fairy gardens. Don’t be afraid to get creative and feel free to run any ideas by the committee members.
