Invitations are out and plans are underway for Bishop Garrigan’s annual Gala event, set for April
This black-tie optional event will celebrate its 28th year in 2017, with the
theme of Harvest Moon. Approximately 420 guests are expected to attend this year's event, which will feature a gourmet meal, live auction and silent auction tables.
Thank you to the scores of volunteers who help make this night a success each year, from providing funds for Gala Jeans Days to gift gathering for the auction to decorating to helping on the night of the event. As we once again transform Friedmann Auditorium from basketball hoops and bleachers into an elegant atmosphere, we recognize how special this event has become. Gala has evolved into more than just another fundraiser – it’s a tradition and a habit all its own. This year we especially reflect on the many people who have helped us build this tradition through their work, gifts and overall presence at BGS.
Seating for Gala is limited, so if you would like to join us as a guest, please send in your RSVP as soon as possible. If you did not receive an invitation and would like one, please contact the Development Office.
Volunteers are still being sought for preparations as well as the night of the event. If you are interested in serving as a volunteer, please contact us for a list of opportunities.
