Gala 2019

We are thrilled to announce our 11th Annual Gala! This year’s theme. "Small is All" is from the groundbreaking book Emergent Strategy by Adrienne Maree Brown. We are celebrating the idea that even the smallest of acts can have far-reaching, positive consequences.

Gala 2019: Small is All
Thursday, March 28th

Previous Galas have welcomed the participation of over 100 local businesses and community leaders, raising critical funds in a single evening that sustain our diverse community and help support various school initiatives throughout the year.

Proceeds from the Gala support our unique sliding-scale tuition program, allowing over 90% of our students to receive subsidized access to our day school program.
