Downers Grove Christian School’s Annual Dinner & Auction Gala is coming up on Friday, March 9th, 2018!  The Gala is our largest fundraiser of the year, and it will be an exciting, inspiring evening to enjoy with other DGCS parents, alumni, and friends. The Gala will take place at the Chicago Southwest Marriott in Burr Ridge, where we will celebrate 47 years of providing quality, Christ-centered education in a loving environment! We pray that you will join us and bring your family and friends, too!

The evening will include great Live and Silent Auction packages for guests to bid on, plus dinner, live music, and guest speakers. Last year’s Gala raised over $90,000 for the school, including funds for new teachers, improvements in curriculum and technology, building and infrastructure needs, and more, all for the benefit of current and future students.

Online registration and ticket purchasing is available HERE at the Gala website.  All bidding will be electronic again this year, using your smartphone or mobile device! Don’t worry—volunteers will be on hand at the Gala with iPads if you don’t have a smartphone.

You can register HERE to purchase your tickets or sponsor a table for ten, become an event sponsor, register as a bidder, and preview Live Auction and Silent Auction items.  You can support your kids’ current or future teachers and enhance the classroom experience by purchasing an item from the Teacher Wish Lists that will be available to view online!

If you aren’t able to attend in person, you can still register HERE at the Gala website in order to bid, purchase a wish list item, or make a donation.
