are out and plans are underway for Bishop Garrigan’s annual Gala event,
set for April 1.
This black-tie optional event will celebrate its 30th year in 2019.
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.
