Spring Gala

The Annual Spring Gala is an evening dedicated to fun and fundraising. As a community, we gather together to support, through silent and live auctions as well as a Fund-A-Need, a specific program or improvement at St. Mary’s that supports our spirit of innovation, cutting edge IB education, and faculty professional development.

Inspire! verb, To fill someone with the ability to cause something to happen.

This year’s gala will be a special evening dedicated to inspiring our students to dream and achieve. We will move away from a theme-based event this year and simply enjoy the beauty of our surroundings at the Balboa Bay Club. Don’t miss it!

Our 2016 Gala

In 2016, our community joined together for a Mad Men inspired Gala at the Laguna Cliffs Resort. The urbane and chic theme brought an element of excitement and energy to our gala as we donned our wing tips, pearls and fedoras for a night of style, community, and fun. The evening was a tremendous success on all fronts, including the goal of raising funds for St. Mary’s innovative programs and spaces. We raised an impressive $356,000 from Fund-A-Need, live and silent auctions, sponsors and ticket sales. As a result, our classrooms have been upgraded with innovative and configurable furniture that better suits the multiple needs of students and our project-based environment.

Thank you again to our 2014, 2015 and 2016 Premier Sponsor:
