Gift Gathering Parties

The NDP Gala is our school’s largest fundraising event of the year. During the Gala, we auction off over 250 auction items.  Some of these gifts are donated by local businesses.  Most of our wonderful donations are donated by parents, many of whom attend a Gift Gathering Party.

What is a Gala Gift Gathering Party? It’s a parent social that supports the Gala’s auction. A Gift Gathering Party is similar to a birthday party. Party hosts send invitations/evites. Parties are often hosted by one family in their home but sometimes are co-hosted by several families. Guests are asked to bring a gift, which will be used to create auction baskets for the NDP Gala.  Cash/check donations are welcome and can be combined with other donations to support some of our larger wish list items.

Thank you for supporting the NDP Gala by attending a Gala Gift Gathering to help us create fabulous baskets for our Roaring Twenties Gala! If you are not able to attend a party, donations can be dropped off at NDP’s reception desk (marked Gala). Also, we offer electronic bidding for the silent auction for guests and bid-at-home supporters (we’ll share bidding information in March).
