    Our Goal
  • The goal for this 10th annual Gala is to raise over $60,000 to support our students by funding campus upgrades, including options that will
    • enhance our facility for students and guests,
    • and make our campus more visible to the community.

    Our most recent Galas have raised funds to renovate our locker rooms, and purchase two Ford Transit vans, a new digital marquee, and a 2200 sq. foot shade canopy. Your investment will make a visible difference on our campus!
