Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Gala? The International School’s annual Auction Gala is a night out – the evening at The Sentinel Hotel includes a cocktail hour, plated dinner and social hour at the end of the evening.  It is also TIS’s BIGGEST fundraising event!

How do you raise money? There are many ways to contribute to the Gala’s fundraising efforts.  A silent and live auction, special appeal paddle raise, wine grab, party sign-up boards and golden ticket raffle all help raise critical funds for our students and teachers.

Do I have to dress up?  While most guests enjoy dressing formally for the Gala, there is no official dress code.

Do you have other questions, or want to know more about how any of the Gala activities listed above work?  Contact Rebecca Roberts at or 503-226-2496 x125.
