Spring Fling - Gala & Auction 2024

Spring Fling - Gala & Auction 2024

With over 130 enthusiastic attendees, including teachers, staff, parents, alumni, and friends, we came together to celebrate our school and support our Financial Aid program.

On Saturday, March 16, we experienced an incredible evening at GISSV’s Spring Fling Gala & Auction! Through an amazing blend of an online Silent Auction, Live Auction, and our heartfelt "Fund-A-Need" paddle raise, we exceeded expectations in raising funds for our cause.

The atmosphere in the room was electric with GISSV's culture of giving shining bright! For those who couldn't join us, we wanted to extend the invitation to be a part of this wonderful cause.

THANK YOU! We raised $94k to support financial aid at GISSV! Your generosity and support made a real difference.

None of this would have been possible without the incredible teamwork and dedication of our Board, Leadership, Teachers, Staff, and Parents. Your unity and commitment are truly inspiring.

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to our success!
