March 10, 2017

gala_2017_image2We’re excited for The Gateway School’s Annual Gala, which will take place on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at Tribeca Three Sixty. This western-themed event will be an evening to remember! It will include a Gala reception, silent and reverse auction, DJ and dancing, and delicious (and abundant!) food and drinks.

Individual tickets are on sale now—we are excited to offer a special early bird price this year. This offer is only available until April 5, so please consider purchasing your tickets early. (Note: Registration is required to purchase online.)

Sponsorships are available at the Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze levels. Each comes with its own set of benefits, including tickets, and choosing to be a sponsor is an incredible way to show your support.

The Gala is the biggest fundraising event of the year for Gateway, and we hope you will join in the celebration with our entire community.

The crew visited Gateway to gather footage and student interviews for the annual Gala, the school’s signature fundraising and community event, which will take place on April 20, 2017 at Tribeca Three Sixty.

We look forward to sharing the completed video with everyone at the Gala.
