Global Gala

Friends, families and teachers came together on February 2 to celebrate the unique and special community that is The International School. We raised over $315,000 for the school and we could not have done it without you.  Thank you for making our 2019 Global Gala a success!

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, 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.

Auction volunteer information can be found here.
