Gala 2021 Celebration!

What to Expect

As with our traditional Gala, the emphasis is on supporting our mission and having fun! There will be silent and live auctions, a raffle, heart-warming stories from our students and alumni, and of course, opportunities to make charitable donations to the school. You’ll be able to watch (and bid!) from your own home, and we hope you’ll consider creating a watch party with friends or colleagues.

How to Watch the Gala

  • You’ll need a Gala ticket, that includes an internet link for watching the event, and a “digital bid paddle” (a unique bidder ID) to use your smartphone for making auction purchases or donations, and for previewing the auction items and raffle prize. You’ll receive that information the week of April 12 and will then be able to link your bid paddle to a credit card.
  • We’re offering three ticket levels to suit any budget. Click below for detailed information about each package.
  • Bid paddle IDs and activation instructions to link each bid paddle to a unique credit card will be sent by email in advance of the Gala. Two adults in your house each want their own bid paddle? Order two tickets!
  • Watch party! Want to invite friends to participate and let them have their own bid paddles? The more the merrier…order tickets for them and then give them the internet link and each one’s own bid paddle ID and activation information.

Enhance Your Experience

  • Gala Watch Baskets can be picked up at the school on April 15-16. 
  • Dress up or dress down and share selfies to #JCSGala2021
  • Adopt a theme and dress code to match…from Red Carpet to Pajama Party, or somewhere in between, you decide!
  • Consider making a donation to our Parent Council (PTO) as part of your Gala tickets purchase.
