The CLS Gala and Dinner Auction is in 4 weeks! This is an exciting event and a fund-raiser that makes a significant impact on our school. We want to make sure everyone knows how they can help. Please prayerfully consider participating in one or all of the following ways.  Your support will be appreciated!

1. ATTEND THE PREVIEW PARTY: Held on Friday, April 17, everyone is invited to attend. For $25 per person, you can enjoy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and the opportunity to be the first to preview all of the auction items! Some people will even go home with items as some will be open for bidding. RSVPs for the Preview Party are due Friday, March 27. You do not have to attend the Gala Dinner Auction to attend the Preview Party. Those who choose to attend may go to the Preview Party, or the Gala, or both.

2. ATTEND THE GALA DINNER AUCTION: The Gala Dinner Auction will be held on Saturday, April 18. Cocktails, dinner, silent auction, and a live auction will all be a part of the Gala again this year. RSVPs for the Gala are due Friday, March 27. You do not have to attend the Preview Party in order to attend Gala Dinner Auction.

3. DONATE AN ITEM, SERVICE, OR EXPERIENCE: We are still accepting items that can be bid on, such as sports memorabilia, tools, items for the home, etc. Or, do you, or someone you know, have a business that can provide a service to be auctioned off? Or can you provide an “experience” that can be auctioned off? Services and experiences are often our biggest fundraisers. If you can donate a haircut, home decorating, a vacation home, an oil change, a helicopter ride, etc., please call the office to let us know. We would be happy to take your info and include your service or experience in our auction.

4. VOLUNTEER: We can always use more volunteers. If you are able to help before, during, or after the Gala, please call the school office!

5. PRAY: Finally, you can pray for the event. It does not matter if you attend, donate, volunteer, or help in any way, everyone can pray for the event. Please pray that we have a successful Gala that continues to raise funds for the ministry of the Central Lutheran School Association.
