I Have Never Been To Gala-Tell Me More!

What is Parish Gala? With the help of many parent volunteers, the Parish Parents Association hosts an event each Spring where our community comes together to raise important funds for Parish Episcopal School.  The event changes every year with various themes and locations, but Parish Gala is always a wonderful evening of dinner, entertainment, dancing and fellowship all while supporting our amazing school.  

Is there a Gala Kick-Off Event? Yes!  The Gala Committee is hosting a Gala Kick-Off event on Tuesday, November 28th.  It will be from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Kendra Scott in Preston Center.  Come shop and enjoy sips, sweets and jewels!  The best part…20% of the proceeds benefit Parish!

What do I wear to Gala? Our Masquerade Gala and Casino will be cocktail attire this year.  Mardi Gras masks are festive, but optional.

What is a Patron Couple ticket? A “St. Charles Avenue” Patron Couple ticket is $550 for two people.  This ticket level gets you priority seating without having to commit to a whole table sponsorship.  When you purchase Patron Couple tickets online, just type in the comments who you would like to sit with (for example, “Susan and Bill Jones” or “Other 3rd Grade families”) and our committee will do their best to honor your seating requests.

I would love to sit with people in my grade….Great!  We can make sure you do!  Our Table Sales Committee helps coordinate grade-level tables.  The committee has representatives from each school division.  When you purchase your ticket, put what grade you would like to sit with in the notes section and these ladies will take it from there. 

Lower School - Kerry Crombie (Kerry.crombie@gmail.com)

Middle School - Wendy Newburger (luvercd@hotmail.com) or Melanie Lipscomb (melanielipscomb@swbell.net) 

Upper School - Jana Ferguson (janaf@fcfirm.com)

I’ve made plans to sit with a friend/group of friends at Gala…how do we arrange to sit together? Same process…When you purchase your ticket, in the notes section let us know who you would like at your table and ask your friends to do the same.  If you have any questions at all regarding Gala table sales, contact Jennifer Koecher (koecher@tx.rr.com).

I can’t attend but still want to participate…We will miss you!  But not to worry, we have several Gala events coming up that you can participate in virtually.  Our online auction capability allows you to bid on amazing items from the comforts of home!

Parish Bingo – The Gala committee is hosting our 2nd Annual Parish Bingo Night on Friday, January 19th.  The purpose of Bingo Night is to kick-off our exciting countdown to Gala.  It’s an adults-only evening of bingo, dinner and drinks and tickets to attend may be purchased online for $50.

Parish with Love – Online auction only from January 22nd - 28th.  Parish with Love is a special Gala tradition made possible by the amazing Faculty and Staff at Parish.  Would your child like to be “Head of Middle School for the Day”?  Anxious to sit in the front row at the Christmas program?  Want to run football drills with Coach Novakov?  There are 100+ amazing experiences to choose from! 

Raffle Tickets – Gala Raffle Ticket Sales kick-off on Black Friday, November 24th!  Purchase raffle tickets on the Gala website for a chance to win!  One ticket for $100, or 6 tickets for $500.  You do not have to be present at Gala to win.

Silent Auction & Big Board –  Silent Auction and Big Board items will be available for online bidding prior to Gala.  Starting February 16th, you will be able to get a sneak peek at auction items and start your bidding.  The auction will close the night of Gala on the 24th.  Our amazing Gala Auction Committee has procured over 150 auction items for you to bid on.  Great gift certificates, jewelry, home items and services…be sure and check it out!  Big Board is a part of the online auction, and is also on display the night of Gala.  Big Board packages consist of unique Dallas experiences, sports tickets, vacation homes and so much more!
