Thank you to everyone who supported the Gala in ways big and small!  We are grateful to our generous sponsors, advertisers, donors, attendees, volunteers, and friends of Gonzaga, and thanks to your efforts, we were able to again
exceed our goal of $400,000 and a fun evening was had by all! 
We are blessed to be part of this special community at Gonzaga with families who have tremendous giving spirits. 

Openings remain for some of the year’s most exciting social gatherings which also raise funds for our boys at Gonzaga!
