You are invited to join us for an evening celebrating our diverse community and many cultures at The International School.  While we all speak many languages, we all share the same sky.

Our annual event will be held Saturday, February 1 at the Hilton Downtown.  The evening will include a silent auction and cocktail hour followed by a sit down dinner and live auction presentation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Gala? The International School’s annual Auction Gala is a night out – the evening at the Hilton Downtown includes a cocktail hour, silent auction, and seated dinner with a live auction.  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.
