This joyous event helps us reach out to the extended community and features a silent auction of items and experiences such as golf trips to Pebble Beach, gift baskets, religious artwork, and statues made in the Holy Land.

Funds raised through Gala sponsorships and the event auctions will go toward needs identified by the school administration and board and may vary from year to year. The specific areas identified will be shared in Gala communications each year.
