2019 Gala: An Evening on the Red Carpet
Our first Gala “Bridge to Italy” was held on Friday, April 21, 2017, at 6:30 pm at the Orchid Events and Catering. It was an incredible success and brought in approximately $130,000 for our school. Many thanks to parents, parishioners, and community sponsors who supported us!
Please save the date for our 2019 OLS Gala: “An Evening on the Red Carpet” on Friday, April 26, at the Orchid in New Haven. The purpose of the Gala is to financially support the school in achieving our educational mission. Our 2017 Gala raised $130,000 for Our Lady School which was primarily used to purchase textbooks and provide necessary training for our teachers and staff. Funds are still needed for continued teacher training, modifications to our playground, and the conversion of the parish offices into classrooms.
Parent and staff involvement is essential for an event like this to be successful. Help is needed with registration, decorations, obtaining donations/silent auction items, set-up, clean-up, and more. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help, please join the Gala Committee for a Kick-Off Meeting in Room 202 on Tuesday, August 7, at 7 pm.
For more information, please contact our Gala Committee Chair, Shannon Tippmann (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the school’s Facilitator of Development, Natalie Kohrman (email@example.com).
