Spring Gala


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. This year’s theme is “Havana Nights.” First time going to the Gala? Check out how much fun it’ll be by looking at last year’s photos here.
