The Spring Gala is the last fundraiser of the year. It will be an event filled with trivia, music, maybe some dancing, and silent auctions. For the first time, this will be a virtual event open to McKinley families (both adults and kids), staff and supporters. It’s an opportunity to have a fun family night while raising money for McKinley.
The funds raised at the 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.
Date, Time & Place
Saturday, June 6 to June 13, 2020
In the comfort of your own home!
No ticket required to participate in 2020!
Auction Items can take many forms. The Gala Committee appeals to the business community for donations of products or services that would interest potential bidders. The Committee requests Teachers & Staff for contributions of their time, as well as Class Projects from parents. Other types of items include big ticket items and Count Me In Experiences (CMI). For in depth information on the types of items that make up the auction portion of the Gala please review the Spring Gala & Auction Reference Sheet.
Contributions are always welcome whether they are items for the auction or financial contributions to underwrite the event. All donations are appreciated.
If you think you have something to offer but aren’t sure, contact the Gala Committee before you submit a donation.
We promote items that will be part of the auction on our Facebook and Instagram pages so that we can spotlight our generous contributors. It’s an opportunity to see who is supporting McKinley and get an inside look at what will be available at the event. We also post about the fun things we are doing to plan the event to engage our followers. Click on your preferred social media page to start following our progress.
This event, like all things McKinley, is volunteer led. Interested in volunteering for next year’s event? Contact the Gala Committee.
