The American Section’s Fundraising Gala is an elegant evening of gourmet food, silent and live auctions, a raffle, live entertainment, and dancing. But more than that, it is an occasion for our community to come together to raise funds to enhance our students’ education. Nearly 55,000€ was raised in 2019 was used to support our strategic plan and the classroom renovation project, as well as financial aid.
The 2021 Gala, A Night In, was a virtual celebration. Families watching from individual screen while sharing delicious catered meal and enjoying musical entertainment, a magic show, and a caricaturist. The event raised over 38,000€ though the spirited online auctions and generous donations.
Another noteworthy number is that 166 families contributed to this impressive figure! Be it buying something in the auction, attending the event, purchasing a dinner, making a Raise the Paddle donation, or sponsoring a faculty member, over 38% of our families participated in the Gala fundraiser, a Section record.
Thank you to all the local businesses and individuals who have contributed to our extensive auction catalog. Please remember to patronize them whenever possible. We would also like to give a special mention to the Section Faculty and Staff who generously contributed their time and talent this year!
Every penny spent directly benefits our students.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
