The McKinley Spring Gala & Auction (“Gala”) is the last fundraiser of the year! The Gala is usually an event where adults gather and have a fun night out [without kids] while raising funds to support the required IB programs at McKinley. COVID forced us to switch things up in 2020 to a fully virtual event. Last year, we were thankful to be able to plan a hybrid event with an outdoor game and online auction. This year the committee has something similar planned but are upping the fun factor and family friendly focus with a super hero themed neighborhood scavenger hunt!

The funds raised from this event are used to fund the required IB programs such as Spanish, art, and dance. It also supports the teachers, the school, and provides the means to carry out other events that make long lasting memories for students like McKinley’s Theatre, Variety Show, and Running Club to name a few.

Auction Items & Donations

In the past, auction items were compiled from class projects, teacher features and contributions from neighborhood small businesses, such as restaurants, salons, museums, etc. However, in recognition of the continued burden the pandemic has imposed on the business community, we kindly ask our general community to consider contributing items for the 2022 event.

The committee is grateful for any contribution and requests details be provided in the online donation form located at: Auction Donation Form

Auction Items can take many forms. If you think you have something to offer but aren’t sure, contact the Gala Committee before you submit a donation in the form.
